26 Weeks is a Remote Career Development for Beginners

A lot of people want to learn Data Science but lack proper guidance. It becomes hard to evaluate what to learn when to learn. Hence there is a huge drop rate in the motivation after 2-3 weeks.

To help learners get a clearer picture of what they are learning and keeping them motivated throughout their journey, we built 26 Weeks of Data Science. Here’s how this study plan will add true value to its learners:

  • Structured Study Plan. You’ll receive an optimized learning plan designed by our Leaders from GreyAtom, DataGiri and more.
  • Access to GLabs. Apart from the in-detail notebooks and resources, you will get access to all free courses on GreyAtom’s Learning Platform - GLabs (Coming soon)
  • Additional Resources. What’s learning without a little fun. You will get hand-picked videos, book recommendation, career guidance, motivational tips, access to your local Data Science community and much more.
