Explore Data Science, our new self-paced online training that introduces common data science theory and techniques to help programmers, mathematicians, and other technical professionals expand their data science expertise, is now live. Originally created by Booz Allen Hamilton for its team of nearly 600 data science professionals, Explore Data Science is now available exclusively from Metis.
Explore Data Science is an interactive learning experience in which learners advance from one module to another throughout the overall 40-hour exploration.
