Data Society Features

Take a look at what our graduates have to say

“I enjoyed the course and learned a lot in a short time. I was a beginner to R and I was able to keep up with the pace, structure, and fully understood the lectures. Data Society has been incredibly supportive by reaching out to me monthly to check in, offering me advice, sharing their experiences, and answering any questions I have had.” – Chant’l M..

“After successfully completing a project for my client, they requested to double the keywords of the original project. I took the Data Society course to be able to do some of these things on my own and implemented a data-mining project without any partner assistance!” – John C.

“The information was useful for seasoned data users, but also gives managers with no programming experience a better understanding of analytic approaches and ways to incorporate them in various lines of work.” – Jon V.

“I have never read or heard any explanations on data mining techniques as accessible and clear as in the Data Society courses.” – Tony Z.
