Learn data science by watching videos coding!

Most people learn best by doing, yet many online data science courses only ask you to memorize information, never to apply it. We took a different approach:

step 1: learn with interactive lessons

In guided projects, you'll use the data science concepts you just learned to answer real-world questions on real datasets.

step 3: learn, apply, and repeat - that's the way you build lifelong skills!

In our interactive lessons, you'll learn a new concept, write code to apply it, and get feedback all on the same screen.

step 2: apply what you've learned with guided projects

In a typical Dataquest session, you won't go more than five minutes without writing code!

learn data science in our interactive platform

Our Data Science Learning Platform

On Dataquest, you'll spend most of your time learning R and Python through our in-browser, interactive screens.

Typically, a screen presents a new data science concept on the left side, and challenges you to apply that concept by writing code on the right.

Before moving to the next screen, you submit your answer and get immediate feedback on the code you just wrote.
