This course is very well designed. You alternate between small videos (3mins) and small exercises through an interactive console. The teachers are experts in their fields and the video and audio are professional (compared to many other courses). I truly enjoy Datacamp, I use it quite often. To be honest, I post this Read More

I truly enjoy Datacamp, I use it quite often.

To be honest, I post this advice because I received a mail from Datacamp asking me to do it, probably spotting that I'm an happy user. But I have nothing to win about it so this post is honest and I hope that anyone looking to learn Python will follow this course, it's a good choice.

I tried DataCamp when it first came out and found it a little limited and clunky. I recently went back and took a look and I'm very impressed by how far it has come. The range courses is fantastic.

I tried DataCamp when it first came out and found it a little limited and clunky. I recently went back and took a look and I'm very impressed by how far it has come. The range courses is fantastic. You could literally learn the whole gamut needed to be a Data Scientist. Top talent teachers and a great, working, coding interface. If you want to learn to code Python, I highly recommend it. I learned so much. I am now in the process of taking their Deep Learning in Python course. Nice work.

This class is a great introduction for people who've never touched Python to get familiarized with the language and how Python can help achieving data analysis tasks.

The instructor talks slowly at a pace knowing you not having a lot of experience and never assumed something is known by the student.

I am very positive about the quality of the courses and instructors. For beginners a great way to start learning Python. The instructions are short, the instructor is clear and enthusiastic and the exercises are not to hard. This mix keeps me motivated.

This was definitely a very good hands-on introduction on how to use Python for Data Science. I would definitely recommend this to people who are just starting out and want to learn by coding, not just by reading or watching videos.
