TL;DR:


So the question who you are and what do you want to achieve?


  • If you prefer video content, so DataCamp is better for you.


  • If you want to learn Data specialization from the scratch, I would recommend DataQuest. They have a great program and you work on interesting projects after you have passed the theoretical part. You really need to think about how to solve the problem, write all code from the beginning and because of this, you will remember the material better.


  • If you want to improve some skills, I would recommend DataCamp. They have a bunch of different short courses where you can get the necessary knowledge/skills and immediately implement them. DataCamp also has Career tracks that you can start it here.


In general, I would recommend try both for free and choose what is best for you.

Both of them worth the money and complementary.

Good luck!
