BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DataCamp is proud to announce that we have partnered with Continuum Analytics, the creator and driving force behind Anaconda, to launch a new series of courses focused on interactive data visualization and data manipulation with Python. “With over seven million downloads year-to-date, Anaconda has established itself as the leading Open Data Science platform for data scientists, business analysts and developers. DataCamp is quickly becoming the de facto online learning platform for both professionals and students that want an interactive learning experience. By combining our communities, we’re empowering the next generation of data science teams to build applications that will change the world,” said Michele Chambers, EVP of Anaconda and CMO of Continuum Analytics.
With over 600,000 students and more than 250 hours of course content, DataCamp has established itself as the best platform to learn data science by building out a course curriculum with academic and corporate partners. DataCamp now has partnerships with RStudio, Continuum Analytics, Microsoft and has attracted experts from companies like Pfizer, Liberty Mutual, H2O, DataRobot and many other leaders to teach courses on its platform. “These partnerships ensure that we teach the skills employers are looking for. DataCamp’s model is similar to Udacity from that perspective, but DataCamp has a stronger focus on using technology to improve the learning experience. Our goal is to bring the learning as close as possible to what professionals are actually doing, instead of passive consumption of content, which hurts student engagement. The power of DataCamp’s interactive learning technology has been leveraged in courses on Coursera and EdX as well.” said Jonathan Cornelissen, CEO of DataCamp.
In the past months, hundreds of businesses including AirBnB, Ebay, GfK, and Nielsen have adopted DataCamp for business to train employees in a scalable way in data science. Over 100 universities have adopted DataCamp to teach students in a more engaging way (case studies: Harvard & University of Chicago).
Today, we are launching the first Anaconda course, Interactive Data Visualization with Bokeh. Bokeh is an interactive visualization library for Python (and other languages!) that targets modern web browsers for presentation. It can create versatile, data-driven graphics and connects the full power of the entire Python data science stack to create rich and interactive visualizations. Thanks to the folks at Anaconda, you can learn how to leverage the power of Bokeh for your data science projects!
In addition to the course on Bokeh, DataCamp will launch three more Anaconda courses in the coming weeks:
- Introduction to Data Visualization in Python
- pandas Foundation
- Manipulating DataFrames with pandas
