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.

A good intro to the tools, but for anyone with prior programming experience unnecessary

Pretty simple, the Univ of Michigan Data Science with Python set the bar pretty high.

It`s too introductory. The methodology with an IA voice it`s not comfortable yet.

I suppose it is ok as a foundation. Otherwise, it doesn't offer much on its own.

Not a lot of good information. Just introducing you to the programs being used.

Too simple and most contents are overlapped (already covered) in other sessions

Upgrade to submit? That's meaningless. Especially for this fundamental course.

It was good as an introduction , meanwhile its contents are little for 4 weeks

It's way to easy to be a separate course. It should be part of R Programming.
