After years of training clients and working with academics, we've launched our own free online data science course to help you with the transition from small to big data.

We believe the key to getting started with data science is to work on concrete use cases and build your own projects fast. So this course is be focused on teaching you the basics as well as giving you practical skills to solve actual business use cases.

Here we'll share the videos and content of these online sessions so you can start learning, too.
