Review of Udacity Nanodegrees - are they worth it?

Udacity has become a popular platform for learning about various things in data science, machine learning and programming in general. In this episode, we will discuss the good, bad and ugly of the Udacity nanodegrees. I will also cover my experiences with Deep Learning and NLP Nanodegrees.  We will cover things like how Udacity has great production quality and has nice intro courses, but due to their lack of depth and low community engagement, the high costs might not be justified (most of their nanodegrees are around $1,000 currently) But if cost is not a concern, then Udacity could be a good way to get into a new area. If you prefer a structured approach with timelines, they could be good too but if you don't mind doing your own research, reading of blogs and watching free videos online, then again Udacity nanodegrees may not be worth the cost.  Resources: 1) Deep Learning Nanodegree: https://www.udacity.com/course/deep-learning-nanodegree--nd101 2) NLP Nanodegree: https://www.udacity.com/course/natural-language-processing-nanodegree--nd892 3) DeepLearning.AI by Andrew Ng: https://www.coursera.org/deeplearning-ai  Please support the podcast by rating it in Apple Podcasts, and also leaving a review :) Thanks for listening! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/the-data-life-podcast/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/the-data-life-podcast/support
