Data Science Learning Journeys

Develop Your Data Science Skills

Embark on a Data Science Learning Journey

“The sexiest job of the 21st century!” declared the now-famous Harvard Business Review article that sparked all the hype around data science in 2011.”

We’ve experienced first hand what works and what doesn’t through our consulting business, and we pass that knowledge on to you through our education business. You learn all the ins and outs of the data science models most seen in the field, in a fast-paced classroom training that ups your game.

The Data Science Learney Journey

The training courses in this journey teach you new skills and empower you to stay ahead professionally. We offer solid fundamentals that apply to practical Python courses, whether you are a beginner or an advanced user. We also offer courses on Spark, R, and Deep Learning.

Our learning journeys are designed to find the perfect balance between the theory from university with the intensity of a bootcamp. These ingredients are blended into a training format that fits anyone preferred style of learning. You might not start a Ph.D. after one of our courses, but you won’t need to take a three-month sabbatical to become proficient either. We teach you enough theory to know when you’re playing with fire, but we focus on applicability for your job.

In-Company Training Programs

From Python Foundation to Start-Up Cofounder -Anne Willem de Vries

How often do you book a training course and end up founding a start-up through someone you meet there? Well, that’s exactly what Anne Willem de Vries did after completing GoDataDriven’s Data Science with Python training.

“I met an entrepreneur from the publishing world during the Python training,” Anne Willem recalled. “He was very interested in data, and together we worked on creating a churn model that was quite a success,” he laughed. “It ended up saving him close to €100,000.” After that, the entrepreneur introduced Anne Willem to his partners, and within a few months, they started Silverflow, a payment processing company.


Next Steps

Training Directions After This Learning Journey

Learning Journeys guide you through our curriculum and ensure the courses meet your needs and provide an effective development path. For example, our three Python courses take participants from beginner to expert, after which you can choose a specialization course to further hone their skills.

Deepen Your Data Enigeering Skills?

We’ll teach you how to leverage Docker to ease your deployments and navigate code written by data scientists ( Advanced Python and Data Science in Production). You will learn to use Apache Airflow, Apache Spark, and Kafka like a forklift to move data around.
