My experience with Byte Academy has been mixed. On one hand, administration is a mess. The lack of communication is aggravating and detrimental to student success. However, they do a good job at recruiting teachers. My experience with the data science instructor was mostly good. She explained things well, has well written resources, but seems to be uninformed about what students she's working with. It was frustrating to learn that I did not have the correct operating system to work with, so we ended up wasting an entire half class on setting my computer up. The instructor did offer to meet for an extra hour, but because I work full-time, it was just not possible. Upsetting, to say the least. The course was very useful, however. I learned a lot, was challenged, and don't regret enrolling, despite my difficulty with logistics.
Amazing instructor! The lectures were very detailed and comprehensive and the instructor was very well informed with the material and explained it in an easy manner.
Their Intro to R workshop was awesome, but the bootcamp at $15000 is way too much to justify enrolling in the course.
Great class! Very knowledgable teacher.
The geospatial data analysis workshop was phenomenal! I didn't even know that tools like plotly and geojsonio existed at all. The curriculum was really well developed and the instructor (Ms. Cordero) did a great job at teaching the concepts and walking through the code. Would recommend to anyone looking to go into data science!
Leslie is a diligent teacher, who has enormous knowledge on Python. I definitely would recommend her.
