The days of learning data science by passively consuming video lectures are over. Real learning takes place when a student’s hands are on the keyboard, writing code, working with data, and solving problems. If you agree, keep reading!

ABOUT DATACAMP

DataCamp is building the future of data science education. Our students get real hands-on experience by completing self-paced, interactive data science courses from the best instructors in the world, right in the browser. In fact, over 1.7 million students around the world have completed over 80 million DataCamp exercises to date!

Behind every great DataCamp course are the passionate folks who built it. We decided early on that the best way for us to maximize value for our students is to build courses in partnership with top companies and experts in the data science community. That’s why our course library is packed with courses from companies like Anaconda and RStudio and data scientists like Andy Müller (scikit-learn), David Robinson (broom), and Hadley Wickham (ggplot2, dplyr).
