Happy with the content and trainers
C Wong
That it can give people the confidence to approach this big complex theme of 'data' even if they haven't worked in anything similar before! And super cool behind-the-scene industry examples (by Jesper & Stefan in particular) that shows how data IS applied in the real-world today.
P Delombre
It opens up new possibilities with Data that I did not see before; detect fraud, make real-time recommendations, drive community growth. The trainers and facilitators were highly skilled in their areas, taking both the big picture as well as a pragmatic approach to the training. An amazing group of talented people with the heart at the right place.
