Free 365 Data Science Courses

365 Data Science is making all of their courses free until April 15. They have a variety of courses across R, Python, SQL, and more. Their platform also has courses that give a great mathematical foundation behind machine learning, which helps you a lot as you get deeper into data science. They also have courses on deep learning, which is a hot field right now.

In addition to pure data science, 365 Data Science also covers material on Git / Github, which is essential for any data scientist nowadways.

Another nice feature of 365 Data Science is that they also offer courses related to business intelligence tools like Tableau, thus giving a well-rounded grounding in data science.
