Online Data Science Masters
The journey we took and skills we acquired through studying data science online
Fraser Campbell and Sabine Crevoisier
On May 21st 2014, we flew out to Thailand with loaded backpacks, this time for a different reason than the holidays which came before. We were taking 6 months out of our lives to study Data Science online.
After four years in industry, the still young world of open source and open access education inspired us to test courses that re-ignited our interest in science. Blown away by the quality of courses available, comparable to a reputable Master degree, we decided to create a tailored curriculum with the aim of becoming Data Scientists.
This website showcases some of the skills we have acquired on this journey. We hope it might demonstrate what is possible through the open source learning movement; acknowldege those who continue to make this learning available and maybe even inspire others to pursue the learning they always dreamed of.
