data science Awards Best YouTube Tutorial
- YouTube tutorials are always free and repeatable - one of their greatest strengths.
- Course delves well beyond the basics of Python and gets deep into databases for data science.
- Course caters to an audience that already understands the fundamentals of programming and doesn't waste time on things you already know.
- Content covers the usage of powerful resources. Accessing and installing them can provide barriers in completing the course.
- Interaction with instructor is extremely limited unless you pay for the additional DataCamp course.
