Excellent insight and guidance on essential practices in building a data science team. Area of improvement is emphasizing python more than R as python has become the preferred programming language in data science.

A lot of content is more or less generic, same as any software engineering team building. Specific scenarios should have been covered to make it data science team specific.

Horrible experience with one quiz where I lost hours just because it is completely misleading, tricky and bad formulated. Many people had the same experience from long time ago and they didn’t have the courtesy to fixed it.

although important. The content is a bit primitive for professionals who have been in the corporate world for more than a decade. It only confirms that team work is essential in any discipline and any practice.
