Kenneth Hau - Data Science & Machine Learning Graduate
Before joining Xccelerate's bootcamp I was in Human Resources. I had been doing that for about 2 years. I realised that I enjoy solving problems and considered entering a field related to creativity and development. This is why I wanted a career change.
After I realised my interest at the end of last year, I started doing research from YouTubers, they said Python is a must-learn programming language. Then I started to self-learn python online, and found Python is related to data science, so I decided to join Xccelerate.
Although the course may seem intensive, with every day going from 9 am to 6 pm,I found it quite enjoyable! I like learning, so I treated it as an opportunity for me to venture into a new field. Now, coding has become part of my lifestyle! It has exceeded my expectations, because at the beginning I knew nothing about coding bootcamps, and it was my first time joining one. I was wondering what I was going to learn about? What will the learning environment be like? But when I started, I found it is completely different from my previous experience, I was completely immersed into this coding world. I was so happy about that! Also, I could discuss with my peers who had similar interests, allowing us to come up with new ideas!
I think the course was beyond my expectations, if 10 marks is the maximum I could give, I would give Xccelerate 11 marks, or even 15 marks, because it's really amazing!
In the future, I would like to delve deeper into the tech industry which will provide me with a more comfortable and flexible working environment, which will allow me to think more creatively, rather than restricting me in a frame.
I have gained data science knowledge and skills starting from 0, and now I am confident to step into the field of data science. This course can really help those who are interested in technology or thinking of changing their career. It’s possible for them to make it happen.
