SDSA is started by founders who are passionate about Data Science and would want to help grow the community by educating the public about Data Science. They choose to add value and build up the Data Science ecosystem instead of taking the profit-driven approach. One thing the founders are very particular about is the quality of lessons have to be at top-notch standards and students really learn & benefit from their classes rather than just going for the certificate.
In a nutshell, they are nurturing a new generation of innovators and thinkers that do not just attend classes for learn-sake but rather learn and apply in real-world situations. Using data science and analytics to solve problems for all different scenarios.
