Loved the training format, content and the exercises. Jemma is a great Instructor.

Team is very good to organize things, reply immediately to coordinate and advise.

Great experience with using the online training with Webcam and Zoom. It is as if I was there in the same classroom but in the comfort of my own setting.

Very good training. Remote mode makes it a little bit harder at the beginning. All went well after warm-up

I recommend the class to get introduced to Python and apply 'how-to' data science.
