"Amazing learning experience and BEST instructor ever!"

I took the Big Data at Scale course with WeCloudData. The course introduces the latest big data tools and platforms such as Apache Spark and Amazon Web Services, as well as real-world use cases and industrial best practices. The course also includes an... Read More

I chose this course basically because my company uses Apache Spark and Hadoop distributed system, and I would like to learn more about it. Surprisingly, what I learned from this course has been far beyond my expectation! I wish I knew WeCloudData earlier so that I wouldn't have been that struggled at work.

Before taking this course, I barely understood some log errors such as "Fail to start name node" and could only write simple queries in spark-shell. Now, I learned the theories behind and improved my programming skills. I am even capable to teach my peer colleagues some materials. Moreover, all the best practices and use cases taught in class gave me great insight of how to build pipeline efficiently and let me practice to think about the big picture of a design. It is actually something I appreciate the most, since when I did the project, the overall design architecture just came into my mind immediately after my team defined the scope.

I would also like to express my gratitude and appreciation to the instructor Shaohua in this course. He is extraordinarily knowledgeable and experienced, one of the best instructor I have ever seen! The way he approaches to a theory is really straightforward and easy to understand. He is nice and patient while answering questions as well, and always makes sure every student is on the right track. The program managers of WeCloudData are kind and amiable too. It was a great pleasure to talk with them!

"Get a Job in Data Science"

There are so many resources available to learn data science, many free or very low cost. Why spend thousands of dollars to attend the WeCloud Data fulltime Bootcamp? For the Structure, Support, Resources, Opportunities and Networking it provides. The... Read More

Lectures and learning materials are provided. The focus on building skills in Python, SQL, Big Data, and building a strong business relevant Portfolio.The TAs and guest lectures are very helpful. You will still need to work very hard and supplement your learning beyond the classroom instruction with additional resources.

To get a job in Data Science, you need to convince hiring managers that you are prepared for that job. An excellent path to that goal is through the WeCloud Data Full Time Bootcamp. They will help you and you will reach that goal sooner than you could alone. It is worth the money.

I started the WeCloudData Fulltime Bootcamp starting in June and was offered a full-time job in Data Science by October.

"A must for everyone to start Big Data career!"

After listening and comparing big data courses in different places in Toronto, I went to sign up all of the WeCloudData courses right after the Shaohua’s info session without any hesitation. He is not only very much knowledgable and experienced but also... Read More

Whenever I got stuck, I could get all the help I need from the instructor, TA and teammates, sometimes I also got motivated by other teams and pushed forward by my instructor to continue working on my project by doing in-class progress report and presentations. The things I have learned here and the final project presentation I did benefits me a lot by showing so much confidence in my big data interviews and helping me handing job offers. Quite often, I feel I know more than my interviewers! ^ ^

Many thanks to WeCloudData, it is a great learning platform with great instructor, TAs and classmates!!
