With data scientists in high demand, lots of training programs have started up to help people learn the skills necessary to enter the profession. I’m guessing many of you may have made a New Year’s resolution to learn/improve your data science skills, and thought a post identifying the numerous programs would be helpful. I spent a fair amount of time in 2017 researching the various data science training programs available and have categorized these programs by price, payment structure (flat fee, subscription, per class), and curriculum (structured vs ala carte). Please keep in mind I am not ranking these training programs, just categorizing them. For the complete list with basic details and pricing of each program, check out this dataset. Data Science Training Programs  Gateway Drugs: Free, ala Carte Courses These programs allow you to select and take free data science courses. Kaggle’s kernels are very useful for picking up specific data science skills, whereas Data 36 provides more generalized courses. Both provide an easy way to get a basic familiarization with data science skills and Kaggle is great for picking up specific skills. Udacity actually uses their courses as a gateway to their paid nanodegree programs and you can take quite a bit of the content for free. Enter the Dojo: Free Training Programs with Structured Curriculum Two variations of the free program with structured curriculum are available. The first I’ll cover is general introduction to data science programs. These include Allison, Future Learn, edX, and Cognitive Class. All provide a structured sequence of courses you can take to learn various aspects of statistical analysis programming. Future Learn and edX charge for certifying completion of their programs, but otherwise is free. The second type is programs like Insight and Data Incubator target, which are for science Ph.D.s transitioning from their fields into data science. Both offer highly intensive data science boot camps to build on the statistical skills acquired in a Ph.D. program. Both programs then serve as recruiters placing their students with companies. They make their money on the program from the recruiter fees (remember if its free, you’re the product). Cool win/win idea for recovering academics. Training Buffets: Pay per Course Several programs allow you to select data science training courses and pay per course. These programs often have a large catalog of courses and are reasonably priced ($7 - $10 per course). Data Oragami, Udemy, and some Udacity content are available on a per course basis. Good way to try a few classes to see if data science is right for you or pick up some specific skills. Dataversity also follows this model, but at a much higher price point ($79 - $129 per course). District Data Labs also offers a premium offering focused on corporate training ($25 per participant). Subscribe Now! Structured Curriculum with Paid Subscription These data science training programs provide a structured curriculum with multiple learning paths for a low monthly rate. Coursera, Data Camp, Dataquest, Lynda, and O’Reilly all follow this model and offer monthly subscriptions from $25 to $50 a month. These programs incentivize you to hustle since you can learn at your own pace and the faster you move through the content, the less you pay. Data Camp and Dataquest appear to be some of the more popular in the data science community. Old School: Structured Curriculum with Upfront Tuition Not surprisingly, this old school model is the most prevalent way to offer data science training. Udacity is perhaps the king of this space offering the best value with good content in a structured course sequence ($499 - $699). The price goes up from there from $699 (Simplilearn Data Science) to $8500 (Thinkful). Brain Station, General Assembly, K2 Data Science, Springboard, and The Institute for Statistics Education all fall somewhere between these two price points. These programs typically differentiate themselves from the Subscribe Now! programs by offering one-on-one mentors that can help you through the program. If the one-on-one matters to you, this is the way to go. Otherwise, I did not see a lot of difference between the tuition and subscription based models. In fact, Springboard actually uses Data Camp’s content. I do not have university courses identified here. If you’ve got plenty of time and money to burn, check out this dataset listing all university data science programs. If I’ve missed a program or there's any inaccuracies, please shoot me an email.

December 2017 Newsletter Happy New Year! Business aside, Greg and I want to thank everyone that has supported us through 2017 and on into 2018. We especially want to thank our very patient wives Bailey and Chaz as the make us and Data & Sons much, much better in so many ways. We are big believers that Data & Sons will enable millions to join the knowledge economy by selling data on our marketplace. The amount and diversity of information in a society are two of the biggest predictors of that society’s new knowledge development. By providing a more equitable way to acquire and transfer data, we genuinely believe making all of this new data available will speed innovation and social progress. Thanks to everyone that is making this a reality. 2017 was a major year for Data & Sons and we are proud to announce we finished up strong. In December, our site traffic was up over 1000% from November and we continue to see strong user growth with more datasets being added to our marketplace. Our initial sales and site traffic have resulted in our first two investors coming on board. Both investors are seasoned tech entrepreneurs and leaders and we are very excited about the rapid growth we can continue to foster with their capital and expertise! In November, we anticipated completing a partnership agreement with a data brokerage to provide a greater variety of data. I am happy to announce we now have two such partnerships. The partnerships will mean Data & Sons buyers will now have access to over 20 Million business and customer contacts! We think this will be a win for all involved in the Data & Sons marketplace. Look for the new data to be added to the marketplace in early January. We also announced our data request and affiliate partner management platform. We are pleased to report the data request feature is in full development and the affiliate management platform in now in beta. The data request feature provides buyers the ability to request datasets at a specified price. This effectively creates demand in our marketplace reducing some of the uncertainty around not knowing what data will sell and for what price. Our affiliate partner management system enables people that refer data sellers to Data & Sons to receive a commission whenever their affiliated seller sells any data. We think this will drive a lot of new content to the site and allow us to rapidly scale. What’s next in 2018 January will see our first marketing campaign directed at driving buyers to our marketplace. We will focus on Lead Generation datasets since this has been the most active category on Data & Sons. Lead Generation datasets provide buyers the contact information of perspective customers they can use for direct (email, phone, mail) and social media (Facebook Audiences) marketing. We think the start of a new year os the perfect time to help businesses find new customers. We will also continue to bring on investors and will be presenting on January 25th at the Wave Tampa Bay. Our presentation will provide a more detailed understanding of Data & Sons and our revolutionary business model. Please contact me if you would like to attend. We anticipate continued investor funding will allow us to continue to grow Data & Sons. We will be adding several new team members in 2018. Our new team members will be focused on (1) growing specific data categories by finding data sellers and buyers underserved by how data is developed, acquired, and transferred for these types of data; (2) developing outstanding marketing content that educates buyers and sellers on how to make money on Data & Sons; and (3) more development engineers. Adding to our development team enables us to stay adaptive and continue to roll out great new features. We anticipate adding a bidding function to the marketplace. Buyers can make a bid on any dataset and the Seller can than take or counter the bid. This will make our market more price efficient. We will also be adding a tutorial section. Buyers and Sellers can learn how they can make money on Data & Sons’ revolutionary marketplace either by developing and/or acquiring data for sale. We hope 2017 was as an exciting year for you as it was for us. Here’s to all of us being empowered, successful and safe in 2018!
