    This is a class for computer-literate people with no programming background who wish to learn basic Python programming. The course is aimed at those who want to learn “data wrangling” – manipulating downloaded files to make them amenable to analysis. We concentrate on language basics such as list and string manipulation, control structures, simple data analysis packages, and introduce modules for downloading data from the web.

    I spent three months there applied my knowledge on several interesting projects, including Kaggle competition and data visualization of new york crime analysis with shiny (R).  Also the students and instructors are inspiring and motivating.  It was a nice experience for me.

    Great course so far! 4 weeks in and we've learned version control with Git, mapping in CartoDB, visualizations with D3, and machine learning, stats, and programming in R.

    We've also gotten to network with Data Scientists at Google and Enigma and we'll be featured on Interview Jet in a few weeks!

    Smart students and interesting projects are generating many strong portfolios for students. I don't think think any will have trouble finding a job when this is all over.

    NYC Data Science Academy is a great choice for anyone looking for a bootcamp.  They look for students who have a science / engineering/ math background, but they don't require a PhD (though scholarships are easier to get for PhDs).  This school really distinguishes itself partly because of the emphasis on R.  People skilled in R command the highest salaries - and for a reason.  It is the gold standard for data manipulation and for all the most cutting edge algorithms.  I looked all over for a program that taught R (as well as Python) and NYC Data Science Academy is the only one I found!  Bootcamps are 12-weeks long and cover everything a data scientist needs to know to be up and running upon graduation, included R, Python, Hadoop, Raspberry, and much much more.  Vivian Zhang, the primary teacher and founder, is a great data scientiest, statistician, programmner and teacher.  She's also a great person.  Much of the emphasis is on preparing people to get jobs in data science and there is a lot of support in recruiting - including relationships with  firms Vivian has done corporate training for and partnerships with several recruiting firms.

     The productivity of all the students including myself is one of the most remarkable things about my NYC Data Science Academy experience. The environment of top tier professors, hands on teaching assistants and extensive resources to learn from is inevitably going to prepare you well for a data science career if you are willing to put in the effort.  You learn a wide array of tools and gain very good insight about the field itself.  They're very proactive when it comes to helping you with your job search.

    5-week class with Anthony Schultz. Solid class in acquiring the basics of python coding. Methodical weekly build coupled with Tony's patient approach made for a good base of python knowledge to move forward. Option of extra time before class to go through assignments or ask questions was very helpful. Does require concerted personal time to solve homework assignments for those with no coding background. Overall, would solidly recommend.

    Tony is a great insctuctor and makes basic Python concepts very accessible. My background going into this course was primarily in SQL, but I felt that the necessary Python concepts were covered quite well in the first session.

    The course provides an overview of the various uses and popular packages in Python and each week focuses on one area. I would recommend getting as much practice as possible early on with basic concepts like for and while loops, as this will prepare you best for the later weeks.

    I enrolled in this course with some working knowledge of machine learning, but no prior experience with neural nets or coding in Python. I thought this course was a great introduction to the topic, especially given that we were able to preview the instructor's forthcoming textbook on deep learning. Being able to go back and forth between the book and the lecture notes, and walk through the code together as a class, was really useful for solidifying newer concepts. The instructor was really approachable and friendly, and was good at drawing from various strengths that were present from other participants in the class. A great course, I enjoyed it. Would recommend to anyone who wants to get a high level intro to deep learning in a more structured setting than just an online course.

    Attending NYC Data Science Academy is one of the most important and accurate decisions I have made in my life. The academy provides strong training on statistical and machine learning theory. Coupled with 3 real-world problem solving projects and 1 business-oriented capstone project, I gained hands-on insight on how data science address business demands.

    With software engineering background, I always want to relate my software knowledge to solve business problem. I believe the training at NYC Data Science Academy help me step forward my career path closer to what I want to achieve.

    I wish I can attend NYC Data Science Academy at a much earlier date.

    It is a fast paced course. Five weeks of 4 hour sessions but two of them start an hour earlier to go over homework. There isn't so much as a bathroom break so exercise caution with oversized drinks. But in all seriousness it was a very professionally run course. The instructor Anthony Schultz kept things very engaging. His energy didn't waiver or segue into something irrelevant. Anthony was also highly available. He was there early before class to answer questions and available after class as well. He was even responsive to questions I had about the homework pretty quickly. I would recommend taking this course. I found it fun. At the end of the day you really get out of the course what you put into it.  
    The class size was small for my group- maybe 10 or so students- which was nice. I was also impressed by the space of NYC Data Science Academy. Along with the main classroom, the space has a lounge area, coffee and tea area, and a gathering table. There might have been some pictures online but I never saw any. It just made it feel like a more comfortable environment.

    The lecturer is very energetic and knowledgeable. After taking the four-week course, I feel like I have basic understandings of Python.

Thanks!
