if you’re unsure about your best course of study. I’ve put together some advice to assist you in selecting the right course.
The DataCamp Curriculum Team has created learning modules referred to as “Tracks,” of which there are two types: skill tracks and career tracks. For you to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary for your chosen career, each track contains a set of courses that you must follow and complete.
Skill Tracks are groups of three to seven courses that concentrate on complimentary abilities in different programming languages. Its courses were chosen with intermediate to advanced students in mind.
Career Tracks have a course load of 12 to 30 credits and start with introductory Python, R, and SQL classes that cover fundamental concepts before moving on to more in-depth and specialised material.
Description of Achievement
A Declaration of Achievement will be given to you without charge once you have finished a Track. As long as you complete the course successfully, you are allowed to download it, giving you the option to manually post it on your LinkedIn profile.
Although the DataCamp Statement of Achievement is not a recognised diploma, it does demonstrate that you have finished the course successfully and gained new abilities.
You can access the first chapter of most courses with a free DataCamp account. This is a fantastic method to try out a course and assess your interest in paying for one of its membership options.
The instructor and course contributors are displayed on the right side of the screen when viewing a course or track. You can click on their profile to read a brief biography about them.
Experts in their disciplines who work on staff at DataCamp make up a portion of the instructors, while other instructors come from universities like Oregon State and Washington State.
I should also mention that the instructor profile feels a little thin and constrained in comparison to other e-learning systems I have examined. It would be worthwhile to check out Coursera or edX if you’re seeking for a teacher profile with links to their social media that is more in-depth.
Taking an assessment is free at DataCamp. You can select your topic and filter results by technology (see the graphic below). No registration or credit card information will be required for this. If you don’t know where to begin or if you know a little about a technology but need to learn more, this can be quite beneficial.
Each quiz will last 5 to 10 minutes and will test your understanding of the technology you have chosen. You must sign into DataCamp after finishing the assessment in order to see your results. Your results will then be provided to you as a percentage and plotted on a graph showing Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced levels. You receive a number of tailored recommendations (courses). For DataCamp beginners, this is a terrific place to start. You can check out your free assessment here.
Community of DataCamp
A thriving community exists on DataCamp with news threads, a resource section, tutorials, cheat sheets, chats, and a podcast. It is not only resource-rich but also a fantastic way to stay in touch with other students.
DataCamp has an active community with a slack community page (see image above). A few of the channels include #introduction, #jobs, and #feedback, which are great places to interact with other students about any uncertainties or questions you might have.
