'I applied for the course hoping to gain some insight into the field of data visualization, and this course absolutely topped my expectations. There were many detailed insights into the field, including the basics of data visualization of infographics and a professional analysis of examples. The course also offered some exercising opportunities for us to get some hands-on experience'.
