It was really insightful, coming from knowing almost nothing about statistics or experimental design, it was easy to understand while not feeling shallow. Just the right amount of information density.

Great Primer for what Data Science is about. It also provides the infrastructure of tools needed. This was what I was after, a way to provide other data scientist hardware and infrastructure support.

Was a good intro to Git & Github version control through CLI. I had a faint knowledge of R, which I suppose will improve in subsequent courses.

Very helpful, though it requires some persistence and a curious heart to learn this (at least for me). It's like a completely different world!

Very helpful since it is an introduction to the tools we are going to use and does not assume you know everything before starting the course!

Excellent beginning to this class. I wish there was a bit more about the in's and out's of R - maybe something more about compute science.
