What were you doing before signing up for our course?

Before the course, I had a job in a startup where I was working in business intelligence and also managing sales operations.

Why did it seem like the right moment in your life to sign up for the course?

My background is in marketing and business and I always felt that machine learning and programming was my weakness. So, I started learning to program from home in order to improve my skills, but in the end, I decided that taking a programming course would be more effective.

What was your main concern before starting?

My main concern was that I didn’t have enough experience to do the course, considering that I’d never properly programmed before. The mentors warned me that it wouldn’t be easy. However, knowing that Ubiqum adopted a highly practical methodology, I was confident I could work through it, get a good grasp of the technologies, and apply all the knowledge I had and would gain on the data analytics program. Now, I feel like everything I’ve learned in the past, combined with what I know now, has been defined with tangible projects, which is really satisfying.

Why did Ubiqum Code Academy stand out as the best option?

I heard of Ubiqum when I was listening to the radio, which surprised me and caught my attention. There was no other coding bootcamp that offered what I was looking for. I did some research on the internet, looked into the methodology and the course content, and decided to go directly to Ubiqum.

What were you hoping to get out of the program?

I wanted to learn about machine learning as my background is more business and market research based as I worked a lot with statistics. Machine learning was an unknown field, so I saw this as an opportunity to improve my computer skills and keep up with the trends in technology. I had some experience in SQL and Visual Basic, but I had never worked with a programming language like R or Python before and I knew that in taking the data analytics course it would boost my career.

Do you think our Learn by Doing methodology has been effective?

Yes, for me it was very important because of my experience in traditional education. When I was at university, if I had classes that were obligatory I would go, otherwise I would always prefer to stay at home and teach myself as this was more productive. I liked how practical and challenging Ubiqum’s Learn by Doing methodology is. You don’t waste your time learning theory, instead, you apply machine learning from day one and build all the different projects in a work-like environment.

How helpful did you find the Career Placement service?

Very helpful, more so than I expected. I thought I knew everything about getting a job, but the tricks they show you, for example, how to make yourself more visible on LinkedIn, have made a big difference in the job searching process. I also greatly improved the format of my CV with their help.

Would you recommend Ubiqum and if so, why?

Yes, I would recommend Ubiqum. If you are a hard working person and keen to learn, then definitely. If you are not very motivated and need a lot of pushing then you’ll find the methodology quite challenging. The modules are complex, especially the third in my case, however, if you are dedicated and want to achieve your goals, then it’s the best Data Analytics and Machine Learning course you can take in Barcelona.
