Jovian — 2020 Year in Review
Jovian — 2020 Year in Review
Jovian is the platform we wished we had access to when we started learning data science and ML. On Jovian, you can learn data science with practical online courses, build projects on real-world datasets, and interact with a global community of like-minded learners.
Free Beginner-Friendly and Practical Online Courses
You don’t need a degree in Computer science or Mathematics to learn or apply state-of-the-art data science & ML techniques. Our courses focus on writing code and solving problems while explaining all the required theory & math in plain English.
If you’re interested in data science and machine learning, but don’t know where to start, Jovian is the right place for you. Check out our courses:
Data Structures and Algorithms in Python (starting in Jan 2021)
Machine Learning with Python: Zero to GBMs (starting in Jun 2021)
and many more to come…
Free & Verifiable Certificates of Accomplishment
Each course requires you to put in 40–60 hours of work. When you complete a course, you receive a certificate of accomplishment, absolutely free of cost. You can download this certificate, share it online, or even add it to your LinkedIn profile or resume with a public verification link.
Interactive Cloud Programming Environment
Nobody likes spending hours figuring out how to install dozens of tools and libraries before even a single line of code is written. That’s why we provide interactive cloud-based Jupyter notebooks with all necessary libraries installed.
On Jovian, you can start writing and executing code in seconds, not hours. You can also connect to external services like Google Colab and Kaggle to train large models using GPUs. And you can record snapshots of your work with a single command: jovian.commit.
Our users created over 90,000 notebooks this year, with an average of 8 snapshots per notebook. You can view, comment on and execute any notebook with a single click:
Real-World Projects and Exercises
You can’t swim if you never enter the pool. Our courses include practical exercises designed by industry experts, and by the end of each course, you get to build a portfolio project on a large real-world dataset. Projects give you the confidence to apply the skills you’ve learned.
Here are some exercises and project ideas to get you started:
Global Community of Learners from 160+ Countries
Learning is hard, especially when you’re doing it while working or studying full-time. A community of like-minded people goes a long way in helping you stay motivated. The Jovian forum is a great place for data science discussions.
In 2020, our community created over 20,000 discussion posts that were viewed over 500,000 times. Visit our forum to get help, ask questions, participate in discussions, or just say hello!
A Beautiful Profile to Showcase Your Work
