"I can’t believe the amount of knowledge and skills I’ve acquired in this course, and how much I felt empowered in such a short period of time. I worked hard on the exercises and projects not to get good grades, but because I was inspired and eager to dive into the materials. I’m confident that the data science skills I learned will open up lots of opportunities that I didn’t think of before."
