Testimonials by Students

Stijn de Jong
Advisor Water Supply, Brabant Water

At Brabant Water, most of us were still using spreadsheets to clean, analyse, and model our data. Thanks to Data Science Workshops, who delivered an engaging, hands-on workshop at our office, many of us have switched to Python and Jupyter Notebook, which allows our analyses to be much more advanced and reliable.

Anne-Marie Dekkers
Data Scientist, ProRail

Even experienced data scientists need to keep working on their skills and knowledge. For the past half a year, Data Science Workshops has come to our office once a month, to teach us about a variety of topics, ranging from NoSQL to t-SNE. This is a great way to stay fresh and look beyond the tools and techniques that you’re already familiar with.

Boris Stapel
Trainee Data Scientist, Xomnia

Data Science Workshops organised a training at the Xomnia office in Amsterdam about web scraping using R and the rvest package. We acquired all the knowledge and skills required to successfully bring theory into practice. In addition, this training inspired to get the most out of R by using the various packages from the Tidyverse.

Arjen Verhulst

The 5-day workshop Data Science with R gave us a glimpse of the possibilities that R has to offer. During the workshop we got to work on actual current projects under the supervision of Jeroen, which was very insightful. Jeroen gave us a lot of practical examples and tips. We’re not quite there yet, but Data Science Workshops gave us a head start!

Sanne Bouwman
Data Scientist, Teradata

Great workshop! Very well done and very useful information delivered in an excellent and interactive manner. Jeroen anticipated very well on the different knowledge levels within the group. I would highly recommend the Data Science at the Command Line workshop to anyone that is interested in either kickstarting their command-line experiences or improving their data science with Unix power tools.

Karlijn Dinnissen
Data Quality Analyst, Textkernel

Attending the bespoke course Data Munging with Pandas at Textkernel has proven to be an excellent choice. Jeroen’s personal approach and highly interactive way of teaching made this course valuable to a diverse group of developers and analysts, as did the possibility to apply theory on our own data and API during the courses. I’ve since been able to code cleaner and more efficient, and applied the pandas package in several monitoring and analytics scripts.

Joost van Dijk
Manager Middleware Services, SURFnet

As a seasoned UNIX command line adept, I didn’t expect to learn much from a Data Science at the Command Line workshop. I was wrong! Over the years, many new tools have become available that I didn’t know about, and that can be combined with traditional tools in new ways.

Since attending the workshop, I have been able to simplify and improve the efficiency of many of the scripts I use on a daily basis. Recommended for anyone working from the command line, newbies and ninjas alike!

Mirthe Groothuis
Project Lead, Dutch Institute for Clinical Auditing

We received a personalized coaching session from Jeroen and this was very valuable to me. It’s such a skill to correctly estimate the level of the participants, but this was rightly done and the training was perfectly adapted to our needs. Our training had a practical focus and we could use it as a starting point for the rest of our work. This training provided us with the tools and way of thinking to perform the data analyses independently.

Testimonials by Managers

Wouter Egberink
Manager Commercial Analytics, KPN

Data Science Workshops organised for KPN a ten-week course on Data Science with R. The combination of training, on-site coaching, and remote support ensured that our analysts are applying the new knowledge and skills in their daily projects. For instance, they’re now capable to implement complex predictive models using R. We’re looking forward to the follow-up course on Advanced Machine Learning.

Charles Verstegen
Head of Partner Sales and Data & Analytics, Transavia

Data Science Workshops facilitated a data hackathon for the data team of Transavia. They made sure it was inspiring, helpful, and leading to valuable insights in the way of working with Python for multiple projects and analyses that Transavia is currently implementing.

Joost Helberg
CTO, Snow

Data Science Workshops was able to skillfully differentiate, addressing various Unix Consultants at Snow with very different skill sets. Jeroen made some people rise above themselves.

Jamie Dobson
CEO, Container Solutions

Data Science Workshops came to our company to help us understand big data and the tools around it. They are clearly experts in this field and we enjoyed the course, learnt a lot and one day, when we have more big data, we hope to team up again. The trainer was personable, capable, and an expert. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.

Marc Canaleta

Besides demonstrating a good knowledge and experience in command-line tools for data science, the instructor had very good training skills, clear communication, and managed to adapt the level of the training to the level of the audience, which is not always easy!

Laurens Koppenol
Lead Data Scientist, ProRail

Our DataLab team enjoyed a three-day PySpark course from Jeroen. Jeroen’s approach is personal and professional. I recommend Data Science Workshops to anyone in the field of data science.
