The Big Data for Data Scientists is a 12-week advanced-level project course that teaches data scientists the necessary tools to work with large-scale data science problems. The entire course is built around an end-to-end real-time machine learning problem. Students will learn the most cutting-edge big data frameworks and tools such as Apache Spark, Amazon SageMaker, Databricks, MLflow, Kafka, Elasticsearch, and Airflow. Students will also learn how to train machine learning models at scale and deploy models at scale in real-time.

This advanced-level big data course teaches you the practical big data skills that you won’t be able to learn anywhere else. It covers several important topics such as distributed computing, cloud, real-time data ingestion, machine learning at scale, as well as how to deploy and operationalize machine learning models in production. The curriculum is developed based on years of industry experience and reflects the most current industry trends and best practices. It will connect many dots for many data scientists.

My Background:
I just accepted my offer a week ago, and now I’m back to share my experience with you. I come from a Non-STEM academic background with limited exposure to coding and no hands-on experience in data science before I enrolled in this program.

My transition to the data analytics field was a success, and soon I will be working for one of the largest retailers in Canada and using the knowledge and skills I gained from this program to power its media and digital marketing businesses.

My Experience Highlight
The curriculum is intense yet very practical by design. For someone like me that don’t have any coding experience in the past, it is a bit challenging in the beginning. You need to spend extra time on the course materials, and then you would gradually adapt and catch the rhythm.

Aside from the content, the entire staff demonstrates very high levels of passion and professionalism. They are all very approachable, respectful and very well-educated themselves. They took a step further and learn each student’s personality and learning style and what makes them tick.

Career Service
In my opinion, this program comes with the best career service/job assistance in the market. One thing that I want to emphasize is that not only it has the best variety of services such as resume makeover, standard & technical interview preparation, job hunting tips but also the length of these services available to the students.

Most of these services are continuous and made available to the students after they complete the program. I felt strong and confident going through interviews with the support and help from WeCloudData’s staff and community members.

Conclusion:
This is a well-designed, industry-proven and customer-centric program that will help you succeed if you are willing to give it a shot and put in a 100% effort.

I did some research on data science online before I made a decision. I chose WeCloudData due to their comprehensive curriculum and because their instructors are knowledgeable and professional (Shaohua and Vinny). WeCloudData did a great job of helping me acquire the necessary skills in Data Science before and during the bootcamp. The pre-bootcamp materials helped me get familiar with the essential SQL and Python coding skills and speeded up the learning curve during the bootcamp. I highly recommend whoever wants to join the bootcamp to get prepared, WeCloudData does a great job in providing the necessary materials.

During the bootcamp, the course work is very intensive. Although I already have coding experience and mathematical background, I still need to spend at least 10 hours a day to study and finish homework and projects. However, the instructors and teaching assistants are doing their best to ensure everyone can get the most out of the courses. During the bootcamp, I finished two client projects and several portfolio projects to showcase my skills. Two of them are solving real business problems for two well-known companies, which is valuable in terms of professional experience.

WeCloudData has a robust professional network. You will have the opportunity to expand your network and show your skills to various companies that are looking for data scientists, data engineer or data analysts. They also dedicated to supporting you find a great job. Overall, I have a very positive experience with WeCloudData. I was suspicious if a bootcamp can make me transit into a data scientist. However, I upgrade my data analytics skills within my company and now I have the necessary skills to work efficiently in any data science project. This program is worth the hard work I put. I am glad that I made this decision. I'd highly recommend this program.
