What were the main reasons you wanted to join this course?
The entities that we oversee are increasingly making use of programming tools to perform data analytics and we wanted to ensure that we stayed ahead of the curve and developed the skills needed.
Why did you pick to study this course at City?
Reputation of City, University of London and the course was a very reasonable cost compared to other, less well-known institutions.
How have you found the online classes and teaching environment?
The course material was excellent, and although the pace was quite quick (difficult with a mixed ability group) the material was manageable.
What did you learn throughout the course?
As I had no knowledge of Python prior to the course, I learnt a great deal and it has helped me to understand the processes that are undertaken to build programs.
How will taking this course help you in your professional and personal life?
In my professional life it will help me engage with our stakeholders effectively and personally it has spurred me to look into how programming languages are use in Blockchain technologies.
Would you choose to study another short course at City?
Yes, I am in fact already doing the follow up course on data analytics and machine learning!
