    Data visualization is a graphical representation of information and data. By using visual elements like charts, graphs, and maps, data visualization tools provide an accessible way to see and understand trends, outliers, and patterns in data. In the world of Big Data, data visualization tools and technologies are essential to analyze massive amounts of information for making data-driven decisions. Tableau is an excellent enterprise-level graphical tool for performing data visualization for data analysts and executives.

    This is a practical course that will equip you with the R Programming techniques to get familiar with an array of popular machine learning models, ranging from the basic Multiple Linear Regression, K-Means Clustering, Random Forest to the advanced Artificial Neural Network and Convolutional Neural Network (CNN). In particular, you will understand why a computer can recognize your hand-written digits and an image with application of Deep Learning techniques. It is worth mentioning that this is a unique course that combines Financial Data Analysis, Machine Learning and elementary Deep Learning techniques. You will learn from the basics and no programming skill is assumed. To many people, data science is a difficult mathematical subject. Instead, we would not adopt a rigorous mathematical teaching approach during the curriculum. Our experienced trainer will use many life-like analogies to illustrate abstract concepts, you will certainly be able to learn Machine Learning Models with confidence and fun.

    Was looking for an in-person DataScience bootcamp to keep me committed (to my career switch) and to meet like-minded people interested in ML and AI in HK. Happy to report that Xccelerate delivered in both thoses regards. Was also half the price of the nearest competitor. 

    In-person courses offer face-time with instructors that I couldn't find in online offerings. I also got to work with people in a team, in person--something which I believe contributed to my job offer.

    After graduating, I had a look around and found a place for a (junior) Data Scientist at an established startup within a month.

    This course has provided me with the right tools to transition from a non-tech job to a developer role. I had previously tried to study and practice coding and data science on my own, but after close to a year of trying I felt I was nowhere near my initial expectations.

     

    The main benefits I got from this course were:

    ·      Affordability & Accountability on the part of the Bootcamp. It was a lot easier to start on this bootcamp than any other available at that moment. And it was very important for me that I wouldn’t pay for something that I would not use eventually – I only pay for the course if I get a job. If I don’t get a job in the next 6 months, then I don’t have to pay.

    ·      Curriculum. Since the first cohort, which I was part of, Accelerate has greatly improved their curriculum with an in-house study plan that focuses on Node, which is also more in demand presently. As part of the first batch of graduates, I had access to the new curriculum and hence the rating is based on it.

    ·      Continuous Support. After the course has ended I was not left to drift on my own but I was given support on how to improve my portfolio, presentation and also find a job. I tried to apply on my own to dozens of jobs, but I was only considered and interviewed for positions on Accelerate’s referral. Their credibility helps a lot in hiring.

    ·      Coding environment. Honestly, it’s so distracting to learn or work at home and also motivationally exhausting to do so. Kudos to those who can organize themselves on their own and do it. For me it was a great advantage to be in a workplace environment and surrounded with other people studying exactly the same thing. This way I knew my struggles were no greater or smaller than others’ and I could communicate in real time with other students and instructors for any issues that I encounter while coding.

    The course truly opens my eyes to look at the digital world in a more user-centric, empathetic way. I get to know how great products are made and how great product managers / UX designers think. Learning this thinking skill is important to me as a digital marketing practitioner. I am ready to apply this skill to solve marketing problems more confidently and creatively.

    Accelerate's UX Course really opened my eyes to new ways of thinking, revealing the many processes that go into creating a great user experience. Coming from a non-business background, the course was really useful (and accessible) in breaking down a variety of key thought processes, involving aspects of consumer psychology, marketing, design, management and research methodology.

    Our instructor, April, clearly knew what she was doing, and struck a great balance between teaching us the information and allowing us to discover it ourselves in a super hands-on curriculum. What was also incredibly beneficial was that with a small class, students were able to tailor what we were learning to our own fields (with April's help).

    I’d really recommend this course to anyone looking to boost their understanding of the many ways in which consumers engage with a product (whether that be a website, a brand etc.)

    I had a great experience on this course. I recently transitioned into a new role and wanted to learn more in-depth about digital marketing and growth hacking. 

    While I was initially apprehensive after the first session (where we covered the basics) we soon started diving into some more advanced level marketing. Our course instructor Xavier was awesome and keeping us engaged and showed us some really cool use cases from companies I would never have thought about researching.

    He did an excellent job of tailoring each session to our own projects. He clearly lives and breathes this stuff which was inspiring for us as students.

    The Accelerate school is great. I've heard similar experiences from students taking their other classes and I will definitely be signing up for more. These guys are really passionate about what they do. 

Thanks!
