Interactive platform
Prepare for an engaging, capability-building experience. Our platform combines fundamental concepts, real-world data sets, and quizzes.

Experiment in our sandbox: Run any code, and don’t worry about making grave mistakes. In a sandbox, even the wildest experiments won’t cause any trouble.
Sprints
Week 1 — Theory + Practice
The learning process is divided into sprints, or two-to-three week long work intensive periods. Most tech companies work this way, so you will come prepared. Each sprint consists of interactive lessons and features a project with a deadline.

Line-by-line code reviews
A professional data analyst will check each line of your code to make sure it works the way it's supposed to and conforms to industry best practices.
As a suggestion: instead of creating a variable raw and using row.iloc[O][-1], try to add column name to the first expression. Like df.loc[df.something == ‘smth’, ‘column_name’]

Somehow I feel like we are part of a group trying to achieve something together despite working individually, helping each other when needed and celebrating each other’s win.

I liked that there were real people and projects at Practicum, and that you had to finish projects in a certain amount of time.

My favorite part of the program is the project and code review. At the end when your project is approved, there is that satisfaction that comes from achieving a feat.

Former Petroleum engineer
It doesn’t matter how hard a subject is, I will always find help. The real life projects are also a great foundation to have upon graduation, I can already show off what I accomplished on Github.
It’s just awesome to see that twelve projects (guided) are also completed within the duration of the original program. In a nutshell, theories, tasks, projects, community and platform all contributed to make the program outstanding.
Saumik Barua
In my search for a comprehensive, intensive, yet practical learning environment to develop and consolidate my skills, I found Practicum. I picked Practicum based on reviews, and I'm extremely glad with this decision.
Xia Cui
Major advantage is how its tutors, project reviewers, and community managers deal with students' questions. First, they are professionals with real-world experience in the field, and, second and most important, all explanations or articles recommended by them are straight to the point and accurate.
