The problem with online education
Learning is about getting somewhere. You don't have time to watch hours of video and churn through courses looking for the right ones. You just want to gain the skills to get a new data analyst or data scientist job.
Courses aren't helpful. What do you do next after a Python course? What are you supposed to learn after you take a course on Data visualization? How do they help you get a new job? More Info »
Courses are how college is taught, so all the online sites have them. But courses don't help you go anywhere. Employers don't care what courses you've done. Employers care if you can get things done and add value to their business.
We've found the solution
At Dataquest, we've all struggled with the education system. Some of us gave up and dropped out. Some of us built our own learning curriculums. We took our frustrations with the system, bundled them up, and started building Dataquest.
By focusing on practicing your skills and building real-life projects, we'll get you ready to get a data science job. The projects you build will help you start a portfolio, to show employers what you can do and get hired.
We believe that you should be judged on the skills you have, rather than the college you went to, and we're playing our part in changing the system.
We have a proven strategy - many of our Dataquest graduates are now working in data science jobs around the world, and you can be one of them.
