“I’m writing on behalf of the whole team to say thank you.

 

Step Function provided a really great teacher who judged the pace perfectly. We got so much out of the course — even people who had never written a line of code before.

 

Yesterday, we debriefed internally; the ideas were flowing and everyone was able to “talk the same language” in respect of the data challenges / opportunities we face. The team has definitely levelled-up.”

Tom Cohen – Co-Founder and CTO at Popsa

“The teacher was super willing to change the syllabus in response to our questions and the use cases we encounter at work.

 

We learnt some really useful tips and tricks, despite not being new to Python.”
