Our practical approach teaches you Data Science using interactive coding challenges. Unlike other courses, we don't use videos of lectures.
Watching videos doesn't help you learn. Instead, you'll be writing code and working with real-life data sets from your browser. We'll check your code, give you hints along the way, and give you help and support as you learn.
We provide complete learning paths for becoming a Data Scientist or Data Analyst. We teach you everything you need to know, so you don't have to worry about satisfying pre-requisites.
Our project-driven focus helps you learn the skills quickly, and start to apply them so you can get going fast. We help you turn your pr...Read more

I am doing courses (or "missions" as a Dataquest calls them) in the data science stream as a premium user. I have also done courses at a rival site Datacamp. Dataquest courses are better because they are sufficiently detailed and hard enough to make the learning experience work. The Dataquest tutorials build on each other and link to each other better than Datacamp's tutorials. The user interface is great, and includes a fully function Python console and script editor with text highlighting. My only suggestion would be that they should provide automatic code completion. However, typing the code yourself helps you to learn the code :). I really love their "guided projects" too, which are done in a fully functional Jupyter Noteback. This allows you to do more independent thinking ...Read more
Dataquest teaches the topics from the basics because of which it is easy to understand for everybody. One can practice while learning and also build a portfolio using the projects. The courses at Dataquest have been built in such a manner that you gradually upgrade your knowledge without having to take in too much or too little at once. It is, therefore, one of the best online courses for a data scientist.
I signed up for Data Quest as an adjunctive toolkit to help support my Masters in Data Science. So far it's been extremely useful in helping me absorb basic programming concepts and I look forward to completing the Data Science Path in the coming months.
I've dabbled in other MOOCs including Data Camp, Treehouse and Udacity. Data Camp feels too compartmentalized and the lack of projects makes reinforcing skills difficult. Treehouse and Udacity certainly do a better job by integrating projects, but contrary to what I originally thought video instruction has proven to be more of an inhibitor than anything in terms of knowledge acquisition.
In the end, it took lots of experimentation but Data Quest's format of having instructions on the left and a text editor on the right ended up ...Read more
Dataquest is so great. You can get hand-on experience from data import, data cleaning, and modeling.
Also you can practice python and R programming skills through practical examples.
It is very great since it teaches you from the beginning to the deep.
I spent a LOT of time researching what skills I needed to learn to become a Data Scientist, as well as the myriad of courses offered. It got to the point where I was so overwhelmed by everything I needed to learn and which option was the best that I never started anything—paralysis by analysis.
I discovered DataQuest and really like how they clearly laid out the course progression that hits a lot of the key skills I knew I need to learn. I began their free offerings and found that I was making significant progress with their in-browser coding techniques. As I progressed, I realized I was actually learning material, and appreciate that they reinforce concepts with projects. I have begun using their guided Jupyter projects, and adapting them to create the beginnings of a portfolio. Fo...Read more
There is no resource like it on the web for structured and most importantly focused learning of data science.
*** What it is and how it is structured ***
DQ is a platform that trains you up from having no data skills (except a good brain) into having the opportunity to become a professional in the field (success not guaranteed, they stress that you need to do some portfolio projects of your own),
There are three paths, analyst, scientist and engineer. Analyst is about 50% of the Scientist course and engineer focuses on other areas too. The courses all have overlap because they're looking at the same tools, i.e. using Python, using SQL, data sets, servers, etc. All those tools are explained in language that is simple and clear, and then through practical examples.
The platf...Read more
I think that DataQuest is one of the best springboards into a data-focused career that money can buy. 1) It's mostly free, 2) the paid content is absolutely worth the cost, and 3) their community and support is top notch. I've been reccommending it to all of my friends who are interested in building their data-focused skills since I found it. The website is incredibly well made, the problems are interesting AND relevant, and it's focuses on important topics that are useful and marketable. Great job!
I have been taking Dataquest courses for the past few months and made very much progress in enhancing my knowledge on Python and Data Science. The lessons are well structured, helping me one step at a time. The guided projects are a way to enforce the learnings from previous lessons. I was not stuck at ant point as all practice lessons also allow to check answers if someone is stuck. Thanks a lot and hats off to Dataquest creators.
I've been learning Python and data science on dataquest.io for the past few months and the experience has been great so far. Prior to Dataquest I tried to learn Python by myself and it was quite difficult, but after joining Dataquest learning Python has become so much easier and effective. With Dataquest I feel that I'm definitely on track to have very good skills in Python and data science!
I'm only about 3 courses into the Data Scientist learning path. But I am absolutely loving it. It's giving me great confidence moving forward, and I'm excited by each of the new things I'm picking up. Working in manufacturing I didn't know for sure that it would be so pertinent, but I am feeling a high degree of certainty that I'll be using a large percentage of what I'm learning in a practical sense.
Dataquest is a great place to learn. Everything that the Dataquest team does, really facilitates your learning and development. I am able to grasp concepts with ease thanks to the way that Dataquest is setup. Learning by doing is amazing, and the guided projects are really helpful and thought provoking. At the end of every communication that you receive (from anyone at Dataquest) they say to reply if you have any questions. Well I have replied a couple of times, and the response time is amazing. It’s not an automated response either, they answered each one of my questions. All in all, the learning environment created by Dataquest is amazing, and it feels like they truly care.
I am Japanese. I am still learning English.
when I started Dataquest, I knew almost nothing about programming, but now I already have finished 36% of courses(data scientist path).
I don't know I will get a job as data scientist after I will have finished data quest , but when I was lost what should I do, data quest gave me good motivations.
someone who want to learn about data science, or programing should start from data quest .
Before I start my course in Dataquest, I almost know nothing about programming. Last year, I start learning on Dataquest, chosen the data scientist path. The first course is python fundamentals, which cover most of the basic python programming knowledge. Each course is divided into leaning section and practicing section, whatever you learned can be immediately practiced in the Dataquest coding environment. I finished the python fundamentals section without any difficulties thanks to the nicely organized courses. There are 11 courses in data scientist path, each course contains several sub-sections along with challenges and guide projects which you can add to your github portfolio. From the second section, python data science packages, there are many datasets provided, learning data sci...Read more
Dataquest is the best platform to give best shape to your mind and keeping your skills so you can do well. Everyday I spare a time to learn new and interesting topic from coursework, and I am gradually building skills as going further deeper in course. From very basic to increasing level of hardness of each topic and practicing every single concept helping me to building my concepts of Data science. What are my findings is Studying by videos lectures is not that helpful than working on daily life example datasets. I started from zero level of my understanding to topic but now because of clarity and well structured course I am at quite better position than at starting. What keeps you motivated is mission completion percentage track.
Specially what I like is Guided Project where at las...
I've taken quite a few data science-related courses via the various MOOCs and after signing up with Dataquest, I felt that I should have started with Dataquest first. The interface is awesome, the teaching method is awesome and Vik is passionate about the subject and it shows with his timely emails and updates. He has written quite a few articles which explained in SIMPLE terms about data science and how to navigate its complicated pathways. I love Dataquest!
Dataquest has found an awesome teaching method that works for people who, like me, hate having to go through theory, readings and long explanations before being able to dive into the practical stuff.
New concepts are gently introduced in order to avoid the frustration of not understanding something from the beginning.
The structure in missions and the lengths of the missions also create a good balance, allowing for people to stay motivated, focused and to move forward.
Finally, the support team is reactive and very helpful, and...it just works!
Thanks to the Dataquest team for providing this awesome learning tool!
The coursework is really structured and the way the concepts are gradually introduced is awesome. You gradually build your skills without realizing how far you have come. The format allows you to have full control of what and when you want to learn. The content has been carefully designed. I tried few other online bootcamps before zeroing in on this one. Highly recommended.
I love Dataquest teaching approach and content:
- There are guided paths (one mission after another) for data analysis, data science and data engineering,
- You can practice every single concept immediately (no long videos or theoretical readings),
- The instructions provide good guidance so you can complete the exercises on your own (but not too much so you are actually writing the code yourself),
- The missions use a lot of diverse and interesting datasets,
- Each mission teaches different aspects (e.g., functions, methods) in good bite size pieces with an overall "analysis goal" for the dataset used in the mission,
- The content is clear and concise, and cover many useful aspects of data analysis and data science using Python (at least at the beginner and intermediate le...
Each day I use this app the more motivated I become which allows me to push myself further than I thought. It can be hard to continue to motivate yourself when learning online through different platforms (Coursera, Edx, etc.) but Dataquest has done an awesome job at putting in the little things to make sure you are continually motivated throughout your learning. I have tried learning these topics with other MOOC courses before and although they are great, but they are no comparison to Dataquest. I find it to be such a smooth experience!
You can spend as much or as little time as you want on each mission, it tracks how your learning goes and the percentage complete really motivates you to continue learning. I am also very impressed with the content offered by Dataquest. I can definit...Read more
Dataquest has amazing user interface. It's learning by doing and coding. It has so many real data sets to work on, and concepts are laid out perfectly. I am mastering the basics of Data Science quickly and able to develop my Github profile each day. Could not wait to finish the data science path. By far, the best online course experience. Love it!
DataQuest teaches you not only data science skills but the when, where, why, and how of data analysis. This program goes deep into the techniques used to gather, wrangle, and present findings on a professional level that gets noticed. I have been a member for over a year, and have tried other programs, but I ALWAYS find myself returning to DataQuest as my go to reference.
I am finishing the data science path in Dataquest, and have the impression and the feeling that this course is a great way to learn and to enhance yourself in the data analytic and data science fields. Not only you learn during each of the modules of the course, but also you have the opportunity to build a portfolio of projects and improve it while you improve your code skills too.
With these projects sometimes you get stuck, but are the most powerfull tool to learn and obligate each person going through issues and tacklle them.
In my opinion the different Dataquest path are very suitable for people that like the selfstudy and want to learn about code and involve in the data science discipline. Also you have close support in the slack community and can share your issues with expert...Read more
This program so far has introduced me to important Python libraries when working with data and the most common ways to play with data. I have a better intuitive and logical understanding of data analysis and will be continuing my education with dataquest.io until completion. This concepts taught here are what is in demand in the industry and will help me as I progress forward. I'd like to see this site continue to grow and help data scientist and aspiring students reach the level of understanding they'd like.
I have been a backend developer for more than 4 years working with Java/Scala and have a small working knowledge of Python.
I have always been interested in Machine learning. I tried Spark and other ML libraries using Scala/Java. But was never satisfied with obscurity of the code and the complication of these ml libraries (except for Spark, maybe).
Tired from above, wanted to learn Python/Pandas/Scikit in a systematic way. But could never find the right guide (including books) which inspired me or covered all topics.
Around a month ago I started Dataquest and surprisingly I have picked up Python and pandas without any effort while understanding the internal concepts along the way.
I am more inspired to learn along with Dataquest, which is quite nicely supported with there Guided ...
I have experience with many MOOCs (over 35) and in my review would like to emphasize what distinguishes DQ from others.
It is great combination of theoretical material which is always up to the point (with some extra links to additional reading) AND practical exercises that are very well guided which is very helpful for those making first steps while learning something new. Proper proportions of these vital parts lead to a phenomenal level of comprehensibility. Properly structured lessons with good mix of new / repeated things to learn give you solid base and give you new skills which will actually stay in your head. Another important thing - they use very close to real problems to explore and according datasets unlike many other platforms where you may find synthetic and clear dataset...
I have started taking this course from past 2 months and I am really liking it. I love the content. I liked the practical way of learning math and statistics with python. I often wonder how does linear algebra come in handy when using machine learning, the course explains linear algebra and machine learning algorithms with real data set. I haven't used their office hours though, so not sure how it is going to be, that being said they are very accessible when it comes to any questions/doubts.I am not sure about the job support and so I am not rating them for now. Great learning site !!
