Don't take my word for it - here's what other students are saying.
So far I have learned a lot and looking forward to implementing what I have learned on my data. The instructors did a great job of walking you through the application and pointing out key points that could get you stuck.
Very easy to get started, I have taken many Max courses and just like Max, Manu is also a brilliant teacher🙌. To be honest, I don't know why but I didn't even felt a difference. Both guys teaching style is so similar to each other
Excellent course for getting up-to speed on QuickSight very quickly. Thanks to both of the instructors for very informative sessions.

Having worked as a business analyst in both a major consultancy and an investment bank, I always found myself confronted with both various and complex problem sets and challenging client demands. The rapid development of technology and business requirements forces everyone to constantly adapt and to continue learning.
Since I always found it hard to find high quality, understandable and comprehensive learning materials, I decided to create such materials on my own. Together with Maximilian Schwarzmüller I founded Academind to offer the best possible learning experience on web development and data science to our more than 1,000,000 students worldwide.
