Summary
DataCamp logoDataCamp

DataCamp has a very clear focus on teaching data skills, which we really like. Through this focus, they can offer specialized tools, like their browser workspaces, graded certifications and their data science job board. Also of this makes DataCamp a great platform for going from absolutely no data skills to a level where you might be able to get your first job in the industry. To conclude, we can wholeheartedly recommend DataCamp to students looking to get started with data science and AI skills.

freeCodeCamp logofreeCodeCamp

freeCodeCamp is an excellent platform for learning how to code. We particularly like that it's a non-profit and all the courses and learning materials are provided completely for free, even though their course catalog is fairly limited. Their courses are in-depth and come with an intuitive interface that is helpful especially for beginners. This is why we recommend freeCodeCamp for beginners that want to learn how to code. More advanced learners might be better off choosing a platform with a broader course catalog and a learning experience that less caters to beginners.
