    I attended two workshops with The Dev Masters and gained an understanding of Data Science techniques and benefited from the Python development tools. I was surprised that I was able to quickly create charts from the sample dataset both online and in Visual Studio Code. I definitely recommend this team and will continue to pursue courses with The Dev Masters.

    They provided a really well-structured course, and they offer a lot of help in learning the materials.

    The course focus on practical data science skills and the course is quite extensive since the course utilizes weekend hours only. The instructors offer extra help during weekdays, which become a big help in learning. I’m a computer science student who was familiar with python before joining the course. The data science is a topic of my interest. However, with their proper guidance, I can stay interested and absorb the materials in three months time.

    Thank you.

    Hi, I'm Luis C. 
    July 2017

     I attended the 6-week course at a cost of $5800. Part of the reason for choosing thedevmasters was that they offered lifelong learning. They're nice people and they made me feel welcomed and capable. Having little experience with data it was a daunting task for sure but I felt confident because of their warmth and seeming knowledge. 
    The classes were interesting and made me feel excited about the anticipation of being part of this great industry.

    August 2018

    I'm sitting here contemplating a job at McDonald's just so that I can pay all the money borrowed to pay for this waste of time. They didn't teach me anything that wasn't available online for free.
    Also, all the work done was saved in their student portal which was switched to their own platform that I can't access and all they seem to care about is looking good so that more people sign up for their classes.

    They have improved their program but not $5600 better. They advertise offices in several places but in reality, they rent rooms for the day and are disorganized in every aspect imaginable.

    The DevMasters program was invaluable for me, it has allowed me to excel at interviews for data analyst and data scientist positions!

    Projects are 100% hand-on and reflect real problems faced by companies. The support of the DevMasters team, in particular Sr Scientist Zia Khan, was crucial to succeeding in learning Python, data modeling, and advanced concepts in Data Science (such as Recommendation Systems, or Sentiment Analysis using Twitter Feeds.)

    Thank you Arshad, Kate Ta, and the whole DevMasters team for a wonderful experience :))

    DevMasters is a great course for providing one the foundation they need to break into the field of data science. The course starts by teaching you the fundamentals of programming and Python syntax and ends with introductory classes into the big picture material including, but not limited to, natural language processing, computer vision, and deep learning. While it is not required, if this is your first time programming or you are not very familiar with Python, I would recommend completing the free codeacademy python course beforehand just so the first few days of the course will not completely overwhelm you with brand new material.

     The teachers are extremely knowledgeable about the subject matter and are very willing to address any questions/concerns you have.

    After completing this program, I feel I have a solid foundation of the data science principles I need to continue learning and diving deeper into more advanced topics and projects.

    If you want a hands-on course that you can dig in and get almost instant benefits, then Dev Masters is a great course. The price - compared to others - is excellent and worth every penny. I just love that it's very hands on.

    They also use the term Project Based Learning to describe the process which is a great description of what they do. The team is very competent and passionate about the material. They really want people to learn the material and they do this by having a course that is very focused and efficient. Give them a try and come to one of the meetups. You will certainly benefit.

    My background: behavior analytics, education instruction, curriculum development

    Prior to theDevMasters, I was learning through various online courses, with many left unfinished.  I researched and visited various computer schools and theDevMasters provided the best value for in-person instruction, and for obtaining skills in the shortest amount of time. The instructors impressed me with their technical skills, but I signed up after meeting the instructors.  

    The instructors here are not only experts in their field, but everyone I have met have been friendly, caring, and very patient. They truly care about their students and are very generous with their time.  

    Not only have I obtained technical skills in a fraction of the time, I'm enjoying my time and am grateful to have met with some incredible people - instructors and fellow students - who are not only highly skilled and talented but people whom I care for and respect.  This type of learning environment is not easy to find.  It also impresses me how the program and courses continue to evolve and change, with constant improvements and updates.  

    Thanks theDevMasters !  You've found a lifelong student here.

    I am an Information Systems graduate who found this course looking to extend my knowledge from undergrad. Specifically, I wanted to know more about Data as I became an enthusiast after working with a Customer Strategy team for my internship. I was not aware of the skill of Data Science so I was amazed at the topics the class covers such as Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning. I learned a variety of programming languages in undergrad like Java, PHP, and SQL so learning Python in the course was not too difficult. I really enjoyed the Project Based Learning portion of the course. The projects mimic real life cases you could face as a Data Scientist. These projects also give you experience in cleaning data, building predictive models, and feature engineering.

    I highly recommend this course because of the great team you will get to learn from. If you never coded a day in your life or have no statistics background, this course is still for you. The DevMasters team will get you moving in the right direction to master Data Science. There is a lot of great knowledge to gain from this course if you are willing to put the time and effort to learn a new skill.

    The DevMasters is a learning center(s) that offer(s) courses in data science. They offer scholarships sometimes, too. The best part about it is that it's a one time tuition fee (payments schedule available) and you can join all courses. If you feel behind, you can jump to another team to repeat some classes. If you're ready for some different topics, you can join them as well! Their classes are offered all day on the weekends, so it works perfect for those with a weekday job. Most classes are 8 hours which a lunch in between, so you will need a lot of will power. You are expected to practice throughout the week to complete assignments and projects. They have organized instructors that really know what they're doing and have experience in the field and offer office hours throughout LA. If you want a career in data science, I highly recommend a program like this.

    For me, theDevMasters program was the most compact and convenient path to come up to speed on some of the most popular Python packages and tools used in data science/machine learning.

    My team of instructors (i.e. Zia, Kate, Sidy, and Jay) was knowledgeable, patient, and able to deliver a lot of hands-on, technical, and conceptual material effectively and in a short amount of time.  From those with backgrounds in inferential statistics, you should have little trouble transitioning to the predictive modeling focus of machine learning.  Of course, not everyone will have prior modeling experience, but that didn't seem to hold back my cohort.  My group had a good mix of learners from varying backgrounds, which encouraged more questioning and conversations in class.

    Overall, I had a very positive experience with the program and would recommend any prospective to at least sit in on one of their group learning sessions, review the curriculum (which appears to be updated regularly), and meet with the instructors to really understand and appreciate what you can get out of the program.

    Hello, My Name is Nehar Begam, I finished the DevMasters Machine learning data science boot camp. It was very helpful for me especially because I came from no coding background. They have amazing prework which I did for about 4 weeks and later I completed my boot camp for 8 weeks. The best part of Bootcamp it is 100% applied hands-on. It helped me to understand the concept and apply it in right away. At the end of every class they have in class projects which help us to master the whole day learning into 3-4 hour intense project work. DevMasters work with you for 350 hours in-person training. They have amazing staff Zia , Kate, Sidy, and Jay. These are very high-end professionals with Ph.D. and machine learning specialization. The most important factor about their project is Project Based Learning (PBL). In PBL class your do 6 projects with your team. It runs for 4-6 weeks. These are all project with real data or kaggle projects. In PBL I build my job skills. It was like working with Data Science company. The class was fun and all team members and staff are very helpful. Thanks a lot to devmasters team and the value of the program is amazing. I will call it hidden secret in LA & OC. I will recommend new learners to join this program.

I have both research and professional experience as a consultant for leading design engineering firms and universities. I received a Bachelor of Architecture from Cal Poly Pomona and a Masters of Science in Architectural Studies (SMArchS) Design and Computation from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
    I chose theDevMasters because of the accelerated 6-week hands-on learning experience being offered and various topics covered in the Data Science field that would allow me to get up and running in a short amount of time.
    I think the topics covered and real-world project examples are the most interesting but, working with and getting to know theDevMasters team through hands-on coaching, especially from Kate and Zia, was the most rewarding. I could have learned some of the same material online, books or other university programs but, getting face-to-face time and real-time replies to your questions from industry experts and practicing Data Scientist is unbeatable.
    I recommend theDevMasters to anyone who is interested in getting an introduction to the Data Science field and interested in applied learning through real-world project examples in an accelerated fashion. theDevMasters is a great place to learn from industry experts and practicing Data Scientist through hands-on coaching.

    I have a serious interest in learning Python and not just from a superficial level, but I would really like to become proficient. I walked into the class unsure of what Python could do for me, and I walked out with a deeper interest and sincere appreciation. Your Applied Labs class is great stepping stone into helping me achieve that endeavor. I definitely learned a lot of practical knowledge that I am taking back to my work immediately. Furthermore, all the fundamentals that I think are needed in order for one person to start on that journey and be successful with Python are available in the class. Both weekends were amazing! I definitely appreciate that it was on a weekend, as this allowed me as a working professional to take full advantage of the time to ask questions, get involved in the curriculum and truly learn.

    Data science has been a wonderful journey for me so far. Never could I have imagined a career that is so aligned with my interests as well as my skills. Yet before I started, I was always asking if I could even start in a tech field that is so far from my background in the humanities. Happily, I ran into The Dev Masters group & they proved to me time & time again attending the course that no other school could have given me the personalized training the way I needed, starting from materials before the first day to bring me up to speed with everyone else in my class in Python programming & statistics. What solidified how much depth & knowledge I have in data science now is the fact that concepts (from machine learning to deep learning) that were introduced were not only built upon each other but re-established in projects throughout the course. Each & every project had a purpose to teach me how to apply what I just learned, but also show me where my weaknesses were. Of course, it took time, the 12 weekends back to back is a commitment; but it is said that to really master something, you need at least 10k hours into it. Well, The Dev Masters helped me gain my first 500 hours & I will be coming back to their consistent updates to gain even more hours (especially in their upcoming artificial intelligence continuation courses). Do I recommend this course? Of course! Do I have any regrets? Only that I didn't find them sooner!

Thanks!
