Course Report Interview: Why Student Chose Part-Time Python Course Before Bootcamp

By Metis  • August 07, 2018

After working as an engineer for 14 years, Carolina Gonzalez decided she was ready to pivot her career toward data science.

"I was very comfortable in my job, but I felt I had plateaued in my learning. I still have 25 years or so left in my working career, so I decided to pivot. I find it very intellectually interesting working with data and turning insights from data into actionable decisions," she recently told Course Report in an interview about why she chose to first take our Beginner Python and Math for Data Science part-time course before applying to the bootcamp.

The interview also touches on her experiences as a current bootcamp student in Seattle. How are her classmates? What kinds of projects does she work on? Did the part-time course give her an edge?
