71 applications for 8 spots; that was the competition to get into the 8th cohort of the Data School. As I’ve done for previous cohorts, allow me to introduce you to DS8 by way of some before & after images. These images represent their original Data School applications and their makeovers of them in their second week.
Normally we do the makeovers in this first week, but with DS8 we changed things up and taught Alteryx in the first week instead of Tableau. Then for their makeovers, they have an additional requirements that they had to supplement the data from their original application with additional data and use Alteryx to bring the data together.
As you can see, they learn quite a bit in a very short amount of time. Their makeovers were done based on three solid days of training…that’s all! When you hire smart people that are passionate about their work, the result is rapid acceleration in their learning. It’s the people we hire that make the Data School work.
Without further delay, here’s DS8!
