Pamela Fox loves to learn, teach, and create. She’s currently a UC Berkeley lecturer, teaching a Python class to 1000+ students each semester. Previously, at Khan Academy, she created all of the programming courses and also helped develop the interactive platform for teaching programming in Python/JS. In her role before that as one of Coursera’s first frontend developers, she coded much of the original student-facing experience (also in Python/JS!). Her first job was at Google, as one of the first developer advocates, showing developers how to use their APIs in JS, Python, and many other languages.

Shoutout to the course team for helping me (and others) keep pushing along to make sure we get through the finish line, even when things are hard. I can't tell you how much I appreciate the accountability and extra help!
I love it - just enough content and guidance that can be covered between work, kids, and life but still learn and be challenged
Completing this course has given me the foundation and confidence needed to make the full jump from Finance to Analytics Engineering. I've always felt like I needed a "credential" to make the full leap. Having gone through the course and learning with this community has made me feel like less of an "imposter" and like I have the skills/knowledge to do this as my profession (or at least know where to go to find the answers!). Really appreciative of the entire staff, TAs, cohort, pod, etc.
This course has been an amazing learning experience - no only because of the content of the course but also the way in which is taught! It has the perfect mix of online - individual work - community time and resources. The teaching materials are very high quality and the whole team are super attentive and responsive.
It's a great way to learn hands-on experience with dbt, get exposed to real life problems, industry experts and also networking! I highly recommend it!
I would recommend this to anyone looking to get their feet wet in dbt that needs a structured course and accountability to learn a new tool/skill
Absolutely stoked to share this! Over the last month I had the pleasure of learning from some of the great minds coming out of Facebook, Google, and other enterprises doing bleeding edge work in Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing. Being part of a select cohort spanning three continents I was able to hear about initiatives and research from AI/ML professionals around the globe. NLP is a fast emerging sector that is changing the landscape of software everywhere you look. I'm so honored to be part of this experience and am taking away so many great connections and insights in a field that I really love.
The co:rise NLP course has been the most efficient way I've ever learned new skills. Having access to talented instructors and peers made the learning process both quicker and richer.
I got to learn and directly interact with world class practitioners of NLP which no other course in the market offers.
