In a short amount of time, I learned the basics of the Vega Lite API and I can now use it for work and side projects. Zeke is a very knowledgeable and easily approachable instructor. I felt comfortable coming to him with all my novice questions!" - Wes T. "The CreativeSpace data visualization course was immensely insightful and simultaneously empowering; as someone with a cursory understanding of data visualization. Zeke succinctly educated us about good data visualization examples before guiding us in making our own visualizations with bleeding edge Javascript libraries. I would recommend this course to anyone with an interest in visualization regardless of programming skill level or familiarity with data science -- Zeke and CreativeSpace's course will leave you with tangible skills you can use immediately." - Shyam A.
