While you are learning, you are also learning Agile methodology, which is used for most companies out there.
Along the way I had a ton of fun, participated in group projects and Hackathons, went to talks, worked in sprints, and learned a TON.
Learning to collaborate with others, and learning to build real projects gave me a massive leg up in the interview process.
It's what Practicum does best — they help you build a portfolio, so you can show anybody that you really know how to do it.
The mentors, community managers and support staff are top-notch and care greatly about student advancement and, ultimately, success.
The entire team is so caring and thoughtful, and are willing to help in any way they can. They really make the program feel personal.

It was helpful to convert my non-tech related resume into a more tech-focused one.
The best part about Practicum is the project-based learning approach. All projects that I've completed were a great addition to my portfolio.
The code review is an important part of the course, it's proved vital to both understand the nitty-gritty, and apply best practices when writing code.
The projects are modeled from real-world scenarios, which made them quite interesting to work on and solve.
At Practicum I was glad to have recourse to the career program, where students review each other's resumes and provide moral support.
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.
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.
Practicum is a very good way for students to comprehend and practice our skills. That helps a lot for a person with no prior coding skills.
If you’re looking for a detailed bootcamp with great support from a big name in data science you can’t do much better than Practicum.
