Executive Data Science Capstone

Executive Data Science,

The Executive Data Science Capstone, the specialization’s culminating project, is an opportunity for people who have completed all four EDS courses to apply what they've learned to a real-world scenario developed in collaboration with Zillow, a data-driven online real estate and rental marketplace, and DataCamp, a web-based platform for data science programming. Your task will be to lead a virtual data science team and make key decisions along the way to demonstrate that you have what it takes to shepherd a complex analysis project from start to finish. For the final project, you will prepare and submit a presentation, which will be evaluated and graded by your fellow capstone participants. Course cover image by Luckey_sun.

capstone project

Capstone project was the best part of the course, really interesting!

Amazing capstone project experience very clear content and very well delivered The Capstone project was engaging and fun.

The capstone project was too simple and not sufficiently challenging Good course for quickly learning Data science concepts and creating winning Teams... Good simulation of a real on the job project.

Wish it went on a bit longer :) Capstone project was very interesting and engaging in its interactivity.

The capstone project was really good and felt like a real project where the manager is tasked with the decision making.

This was only clipping through a tool, not a real capstone project.

Great course and capstone project!

I love working on the capstone project!!

One of the best designed capstone projects I`ve taken.

Great design, love the capstone project!

Like the way the capstone project was design, also how the team is introduced and how the situations are moving forward.

data science team

real life Well made simulation of leading a data science team at Zillow.

Beautifully organized project that gives one a(n) (almost) first hand idea about how managing a data science team and then presenting a final result might look like.

love the data science capstone, I even felt under pressure from time to time, like if I was managing a data science team for real!!

Muito básico e simples demais... Good way to put all the learnings together Very accurate representation of how it looks to work with a data science team.

Good case to touch the practice with Zillow, the real estate online and involve with the data science team members.

Great course to understand decisions which need to be taken by data science managers as well as insights into how to build and manage a data science team and project.

Excellent The Executive Data Science Capstone was so much fun, while I was doing it I was really feeling like I am a data manager and managing the data science team in real life.

real life

A nice interactive way of testing what was learned in previous courses and experience what managing a project might look like in real life.

This was an awesome real life challenge.

Fun and real life problems, is easy but would be cool to make it longer and a situation in which real several problems are found.

The real life situation, with videos, and a famous company made this hit close to home.

Great experience that gives an overview of how things work in real life!

The real life scenario been created in this capstone is Awesome!

more challenging

It could be slightly more challenging.

My only critique was that given the near flawless design of the simulation, I would have enjoyed a more challenging problem, or a continued sequence of increasings challenging problems building on the one already presented.

I was expecting something a little bit more challenging.

However, it could have been made a bit more challenging and exploratory by having more possible paths in the story.

The capstone tests your decision-making skills but ought to be a bit more challenging.

too easy

Creo que contenían información importante Best to start learning Data science It was too easy.

Perhaps a little bit too easy to complete :) Very interesting and related to a real project Assignment Useful as a necessary step towards finishing the specialization only.

Too short, too easy, and did not result in a project that I can show potential employers.

Great Project very crisp but was sure to test my knowledge The videos and the interactive testing process was enjoyable but I thought that it was a little too easy and too short to measure the full extent of the knowledge acquired through the previous 4 courses.
