Foundations of Data Science

EPFL Extension School Logo, janv. 2020

After a couple of months of learning at EPFL Extension School, I finally got the diploma !

And I strongly recomment the Extension School : this was a great experience and I was nicely surprised by the quality of this course.

Each chapter contains a part of theory, followed by small exercices. At the end of the training, there is a big practical part, with projects to deliver.

The team of professors are available for discussions and more explanations. Very cool !

Thanks Swisscom for having paid this training !
