“Dataquest teaches me everything I need to know without the $50,000 degree. It’s self-paced, and I love learning by doing. It took away the guesswork of trying to learn by myself.”


Isaac Pato

Data Science / Quality Engineer

“For me, Dataquest was great because it was all hands-on projects — there weren’t any videos, so I could just read through and go at my own pace. I felt that starting from the beginning was great. I had a programming background, but the beginning courses provided a great review. Dataquest was key to getting my first job.”

I like the way Dataquest is structured, how each course is broken down. The project focus is a great way to make everything sink in.”
