The DataCamp training benefit in Visual Studio subscriptions
Eligible Visual Studio subscriptions include subscriptions to DataCamp. With DataCamp, you can learn all the data science skills you need from the comfort of your browser. You get to choose when and what you learn. With no software to install and no special hardware requirements, learning data science is easier than ever.
Sign in to https://my.visualstudio.com/benefits.
Locate the DataCamp benefit tile in the "Professional Development" category, and click on Activate.
On the DataCamp page, you can create a new account. You can choose to enter an email address and password, or sign in using existing accounts from Facebook, LinkedIn, or Google. Once you've provided your sign-in information, click Get Started.
When you begin creating your account, you may receive the following error message: "OOPS! Your promo code is invalid or expired." This happens because when your promo code is created, it expires after a few minutes. If you receive this message, simply return to the Benefits page and click on the Activate link on the DataCamp benefit tile.
Once your account has been created, you can choose a learning path. Options include:
- Learning R for Data Science
- Start Learning Python for Data Science
- Develop your Data Science Skillset
Just click on your chosen path to get started.
After you have selected your path, you can further refine your learning path by selecting a goal. For example, if you chose the "Develop your Data Science Skillset" path, you will see the following options. Choose an option, or click I am not sure. Show me all career paths to create a broader path.
Based on the path and options you have selected, you'll see a selection of Career Tracks. Click on the Enroll button for the track of your choice.
Once you have enrolled in your track, the first course in that track will open. You'll see a tutorial explaining how to interact with the course, including navigation and completing the course exercises.
You can stop at any point, and resume your training in your next session. Just visit http://www.datacamp.com, and sign in. You'll see your dashboard and can resume your training right where you paused. Simply click Continue Track.
