great learning

Good course for new comers.

Very practical and interesting course! Ideal for people who does not have previous knowledge in Machine Learning.

I really liked this course. The way they walk you through the process is very great. Even though i had done the same process due to working in the industry, i was lacking the terminology and the ability to articulate it, this course made it clear me among many other things. Good way to shed some light on what to expect on a daily basis on the job as a data scientist.

Thank you for the great work.
