DataCamp’s 2021 Year in Review and Some Big News

Feb 2022  · 5 min read

2021 was a year of transformation for DataCamp. We’re continuing to evolve and grow in 2022. 

We’ve expanded our learning platform to include new products that allow data professionals to further accelerate their careers and find their dream jobs all while doing their best work. And we’re enabling organizations to put data at the core of everything they do—from recruiting and hiring to collaborating on data analyses, making data-driven decisions, and creating elevated customer experiences.

In 2021 alone, we added multiple new products—Groups, Workspace, Certification, Competitions, and Recruit—along with a significant expansion of our curriculum, including more advanced topics and technologies like Dash, Plotly, and dplyr. Let’s take a closer look. 



Last year we launched our certification program to provide learners with the tools they need to land their dream data jobs. Our certified learners also have access to career services, ensuring they have support at every stage of becoming a data professional. Currently, we offer professional data scientist and data analyst certifications with more coming soon. 

In 2022, we’re taking this commitment to the next level by creating a platform where DataCamp learners can get hired by companies looking for the best talent with DataCamp Recruit.  With the launch of DataCamp Recruit, we're demystifying recruitment for data roles. Through simply creating a profile and filling in your job preferences, you can have top employers reach out to you directly. Get started by simply creating your profile. 

Looking for data science talent? Get access to DataCamp Recruit, which allows organizations to gain access to a pool of qualified candidates of DataCamp learners.


We gave learners the ability to apply their skills in a real-world, yet risk-free setting by launching Workspace—a cloud-based coding environment that lets analyze data and share your analyses in Python and R. Since then we’ve also created a curated library of datasets and ready-made templates to help learners build their data science portfolios. 

We are now making Workspace available to everyone - not only people on our Learn subscription - to allow anyone to analyse any time, anywhere in the cloud.

In 2022, we plan to take Workspace to a new level by enabling higher power and speed, query data sources with native SQL cells, and build beautiful tables and plots without writing code. 

Curriculum expansion

In 2021 we expanded our content library to provide more advanced topics for technologies we already teach, as well as introduce new, emerging technologies and concepts such as building dashboards with Dash and Plotly, programming with dplyr, and more. We plan to grow our library by 50 more courses in 2022, including new courses on Data Engineering, MLOps, Julia.

New pricing

I’m thrilled to share some big news with you today: starting Feb 14, 2022, we introduced major changes to our pricing and product portfolio to make it easier and more accessible to upskill in data science. 

  1. We’re merging Standard and Premium plans together. 

    1. The Premium plan is now available at a new reduced price of $25 per month for annual subscribers and $29 per month for monthly subscribers. 

    2. All Standard plan learners are automatically updated to the Premium plan at no additional cost and now have full access to our full curriculum, including Tableau, Power BI, and Oracle content, Certification, and priority support. 

    3. Head to our Help Center article to find relevant information for your particular plan. 

  2. Our Workspace just got an exciting upgrade—standard machines are available for free or you can now run your analysis at 4x the speed with 4x memory available at just $99 per year.  Write and analyze code in the cloud, anywhere, any time.

  3. Considering trying DataCamp for Business? We’ve now made it possible for you to purchase an Enterprise plan through the website—from teams of 2 to large scale organizations, allowing you to start upskilling your team quickly and easily. 

  4. Finally, you'll see that DataCamp Recruit is going live, allowing organizations to sign up for access to qualified candidates who are DataCamp learners and giving DataCamp users access to listed jobs.

We’re committed to continuously improving our platform to help our learners and business customers succeed and thrive in a data-powered world.
