“DataCamp is the best method to learn coding I've encountered so far.”—DataCamp learner
According to LinkedIn’s August 2018 Workforce Report, the field of data science and analytics is continuing to grow at an astonishing rate in terms of importance and demand. We believe data fluency is absolutely essential in the 21st century. So we’ve aligned our mission accordingly: we strive to provide the best platform and curriculum for learning data skills online. In other words, we want to make the process of learning these skills the best possible experience it can be.
Part of building that positive learning experience to encourage data fluency is access. We know that the students of today will become the workers, innovators, and leaders of tomorrow. That’s why we’ve been offering DataCamp for the Classroom for FREE since 2017 and have helped over 176,000 students become more data fluent.
