I had a fantastic experience with WeCloudData. I was previously in structural engineering and had only done some matlab during my masters but I had a lot of experience with excel. The part-time courses were great as I was still working ~30-35h a week. The curriculum was well structured and we had a lot of tutorials. It was definitely an applied data science course as we learned the fundamentals, but spent equal amounts of time on example problems. We had a project at the end of each unit - a mix of group projects and a final solo capstone. We were taught the python basic, statistics and probability, statistical ML, deep learning fundamentals, big data (spark/spark ML & AWS). This post-graduate diploma changed my life without having to be saddled with debt on another master's degree. I got a position with a VC-backed startup in the Philippines working as a Data Scientist shortly after graduation.

I highly recommend WCD to anyone looking to make a career switch and want to be challenged, but also don't feel a full master's degree is necessary to apply data science in solving business problems.

I had a great experience with the Business Intelligence bootcamp. It was beginner friendly and well structured. I learned new skills like SQL, Python, Tableau and Power BI and used those skills to work on projects i could add to my portfolio. The course had useful quizzes and assignments to practice my new skills. The icing on the cake is the career guidance where they have a mentorship program. I highly recommend this bootcamp for people looking to pivot into the world of Data Analytics.
