I learned a lot.

The best part of the course is the projects as they are extremely relevant... I recently graduated from business school and this course helped me land my first job.

I was a little nervous before my first mentor call. it was the first time I’d spoken to a real Data Scientist about what I wanted! But my mentor, Soups, was amazing -- friendly, excited, and very, very encouraging. He made me feel like I could really do this thing.
