Machine Learning Masterclass

Develop practical skills while building an impressive portfolio.

Letter to Prospective Students

Dear Prospective Student:

If you're like many other developers, analysts, or aspiring data scientists, there's a good chance you've felt overwhelmed in the past.

You want to learn data science, but the moment you dove into this world of machine learning you were flooded with jargon, math formulas, and hundreds of different concepts.

And as a result, you simply don't know where to start, or how to bring everything together coherently.

Maybe you've tried watching lectures on YouTube... and now you know some neat theory, but you're still unsure how to apply each algorithm in practice.

Or, maybe you've browsed online forums for advice, only to discover that you have a wall of pre-requisites ahead of you: Linear Algebra this... Statistics that...

We totally get it and we want you to know that what you're feeling is completely normal.

Think of it like this...

You've basically opened up a jigsaw puzzle and poured all 500 of the jumbled pieces onto your table.

It's a confusing mess that makes no sense.

Jigsaw Puzzle

How it feels to start down the path of data science.

Trying to piece it all together on your own is possible, but it will take you a very long time.

Thousands of other students who dive into this world feel the exact same sense of confusion and overwhelm that you might feel. In fact, many of those students eventually give up.

As practitioners, it pained us to see students give up because we know it's not as complicated as it seems.

Well, we were determined to be part of the solution, instead of adding to the problem. Since launching this site, we've helped thousands of students learn this exciting skill with our easy-to-follow tutorials and courses.

Our #1 Tip for Machine Learning:

Our number 1 tip for mastering applied machine learning without feeling overwhelmed is to learn in context by tackling interesting projects.

You see, when we were young children, we were able to build very large vocabularies by reading books and learning new words in context. Yet, for some reason, machine learning is often taught in a silo'd and piecemeal way...

Mastering a hard skill like machine learning can hugely benefit from contextual learning.

Yes, some theory is important. Yes, you need to know about various algorithms. And yes, you need basic programming chops to get started.

But by jumping into projects sooner (rather than later), you'll benefit in 3 major ways:

  1. First, you won't burn out or get bored as easily. This is a hidden pitfall that's often overlooked in self-study programs. If you don't feel excited to continue, then nothing else matters...
  2. Second, your practical skills make picking up theory easier. The best textbook in the world can't compete with rolling up your sleeves and testing the concepts for yourself...
  3. Finally, you'll learn much faster... When you get to practice each step within the big picture, you'll be learning in context.

Instead of watching additional lectures, which basically dump even more puzzle pieces into your lap, it's much easier to learn by doing.

It's what will allow you to gain confidence, and it's what will allow you to develop a tangible, valuable skill.

Completing entire projects from start to finish is the fastest way to learn data science and machine learning.

The Machine Learning Workflow

Unless you wish to become a researcher who scrutinizes individual algorithms hoping to discover nuances, you'll achieve more by building strong, practical intuition...

Applied machine learning emphasizes efficiency and effectiveness because results can be quantified.

Therefore, if your goal is to use machine learning in your work or to become a data scientist, then the best advice we can give you is to learn how to apply the right algorithms, the right place, and in the right way.

Rest assured...

You can pick up the essential theory and concepts along the way, as long as your projects are comprehensive and have a carefully planned progression.

If you'd like mentorship for machine learning and data science, we'd be happy to teach you what we know...

Earlier this year, we lovingly crafted a complete course on practical machine learning and data science.

  • If you want to learn machine learning skills efficiently...
  • If you are tired of feeling overwhelmed...
  • If you want real-world skills that are in high demand...
  • And if you want to learn through fun, hands-on projects...

Then we've created this course truly just for you.

Student Reviews

I hadn't heard of EDS before and wondered if it would be high quality, but the course has been great. Very well put together, easy to follow, and I feel like I'm learning effectively. I like that it's very interactive - learn by doing rather than lectures.

The course has exposed me to things I would not learn in my job but are highly relevant to the analysis I do every day. The things I've learned in this course have been a differentiator for me in my day job.

I just wanted to learn the best contents and not waste my time. I am familiar with Javascript and R, but seldomly use python.

With your course, I like that I can learn stuff in a humorous way. It keeps me studying and I never lose interest. After taking your course, I learned how to solve problems in an efficient way. It's good for Data science and learning python, and it is time saving!

I've been let down by online courses before, and I was weary of sinking money into something else. I'd tried MOOC Machine Learning classes before, but they focused on algorithms too much.

I fell right into the driver's seat — the seat where you LEARN! — with your course. I found it very hard to lose gumption through the course because the topics built upon each other well, and you always had those cheat sheets if I was really stuck.

Now, I'm no longer totally opaque about the machine learning space, and the course reinvigorated my motivation for learning.

  • I found this course to have an excellent layout and approach in comparison to traditional 'bootcamps'. The "hands-on" approach with excellent explanations on academics where needed is the best I have ever seen. Your course helped someone who has limited knowledge on statistics and primarily with a software development background learn ML techniques.

    The course delivers. This one of the best I have ever seen in terms of teaching (including other areas outside of Data Science). I can see that a lot of effort and heart went into creating this course.

Do I need to know Python to take this course?

No. In fact, some of our students do not even have prior coding experience.

Our comprehensive Python Crash Course teaches the essentials needed for machine learning. It starts with programming fundamentals (which you can skip if you have prior experience) and then covers Python syntax, libraries, best practices, and examples.

How does this compare to Andrew Ng's machine learning course (at Stanford)?

We think Andrew Ng’s machine learning course is fantastic. However, it’s heavy on theory and very light on practice. Andrew’s course will give you a good understanding of the math, but applying those algorithms the right way is a whole ‘nother beast.

This course is the missing link between academic theory and the real-world best practices professionals are actually using. It’s also beginner-friendly, as we cover all the essential concepts.

How much time investment is required?

The course is designed to take about 30-50 hours to complete, depending on your background. Most students finish the course in 1-3 months, part time. The course is self-paced, and you get lifetime access, so you can find the best pace for you.

Can I list these projects on my resume/LinkedIn profile?

Yes, absolutely. We want you to learn the skills and walk away with some shiny trophies to show for it.

What if I don't like the course?

Our philosophy is very simple: if you don’t learn, we don’t earn. If you’re unhappy with the course for any reason, simply email us within 30 days, and we’ll give you a full refund, no questions asked.

Will this help me become a data scientist or ML engineer?

Short answer: Yes, very much.

Long answer: This course was created to help anyone in any industry apply machine learning to get professional-grade results. Companies want to see if you can deliver value, so these business-oriented projects are 100x more impressive than academic ones.

Is this course compatible with Python 3?

Yes, this course is compatible with both Python 2.7+ and Python 3. In fact, our bonus Quickstart Guide will help you painlessly get set up with either version of Python and all of the required libraries.

What if I have another question?

Send us an email, and we’ll be happy to answer it! You can reach us at support [at] elitedatascience [dot] com.

  • I am 20% into the course so far so good. I feel course contents has reduced the complexity in understanding machine learning concepts.

    Content is crisp not too much of reading theory which is usually what I found in others. Though it is important but lots of examples with associated theory is fruitful. So I think I will complete this course unlike others which I had opted into earlier.
    Hima M.Java Software Developer, India
  • I am not too experienced with Python and was unsure to what extent it would be covered in the course. But I was very impressed with the Extended Python Course.

    It is very helpful to follow the examples in the Jupyter notebook, as it helps solidify the topics. I am learning a lot about Python as well as Pandas and NumPy. Most importantly, it makes understanding the concepts easy due to the language used and accompanying examples.

    Also, I would like to thank everyone that put this course together. It has been very entertaining and I am glad I have bought the course.
    Ricardo C.Analyst, Canada
  • The course had everything I needed. It's practical, and very good value for the money.
    Christophe P.Business Analyst and Project Manager, Switzerland
  • My favorite part was how the companion ebook is not simply a repetition of the course text, but a very good summary.
    Istvan KorcsmarosBI professional, Hungary
  • I was worried about receiving similar content to other courses like udemy or Andrew ng YouTube series.

    But after enrolling, I found that the steps were very detailed which i like because often courses will skip over what the instructor thinks is obvious but not to the student.

    I'd recommend this course to others. Great price value. Learn a lot. Get hands on experience.
