By RPSep 4th 2019

It was great to give me a better understanding about the way how we can structure and systematically deliver a great data visualization. It will definitely improve my communication.

By MSJul 19th 2019

Amazing course - my only issue is that I think it was previously part of a 6 series specialization and I can't locate the other courses.
