Update (September 2018) – Unfortunately, the one-month free DataCamp promotion has now ended. However, you can check out the latest DataCamp promotions below.
What is Datacamp?
DataCamp* is a fantastic, online platform for learning data science. Enjoyed by over 200 million users, through their delivery of instructor videos and interactive exercises, you can quickly learn specialist coding technologies such as R and Python.
The features of their unique platform include:
- Over 230 courses available to take.
- Regular content and course additions.
- Learn at your own pace.
- Earn certificates after each course completion.
At the time of writing, there are 285 courses available on DataCamp. However, only the first chapter of the course can be accessed at no cost; a paid membership (monthly or annually) is required to access their full portfolio of courses.
In the past, there were free DataCamp courses available to take, however, as of February 2019 this is no longer the case.
What is the platform like?
