The instructor was very nice and knowledgeable. I found the class to be a great refresher as I hadn't used MS project in a while. Plus, I learned some latest tips and tricks through this training!

Peter Cozyn Data Engineer

I now have a job offer! The hands-on learning really helped. For someone like me who is completely new to this field, it was easy to learn all the Data Science and Machine Learning tools, especially Time series forecasting, machine learning and recommender engines. I have a job offer from Uber and am so grateful!

Kausik Malakar Data Architect

Absolutely worth it The Data Science curriculum was very challenging and rigorous, but the trainer hand-held us through the whole learning journey, answered all our doubts and gave us illustrations from his own industry experience. One of the best investments I have ever made.

The Backend boot camp is a great, beginner-friendly program! I started from zero knowledge and learnt everything through the learn-by-doing method.

Tyler Wilson Full-Stack Expert

The learning system set up everything for me. I wound up working on projects I've never done and never figured I could.

Steffen Grigoletto Senior Database Administrator

Everything was well organized. I would definitely refer their courses to my peers as well. The customer support was very interactive. As a small suggestion to the trainer, it will be better if we have discussions in the end like Q&A sessions.
