What we do

Online Courses (MOOC)

In comparison to existing online courses we would like to provide listeners with practical skills and knowledge. Therefore, we develop our own software for educational purposes. For instance, we can spawn Hadoop or Spark cluster in the cloud and integrate it with an educational platform.

Big Data for Data Engineers
Yandex and BigData Team have developed and launched courses on Big Data on Coursera. They are the first ever international massive online courses with the access to real computational cluster.

HSE and MIPT (State Universities) already use it in the form of flipped classroom. Sberbank recommends these courses for their employees.

Onsite Courses & Workshops

New technologies evolve so fast, that nobody can move with the same speed. Nobody can know everything about it. For this reason we put together our big and all-round team. All together we can explain everything. What is of most importance we can explain where you can and cannot use these technologies.

Do you wonder what Machine Learning (ML), Artificial Intelligence (AI) or Big Data is, but missing a good explanation on simple English? Request a course or workshop for your company.

Our instructors are Chief Data Scientists / Team Leads / R&D Engineers at companies such as Amazon AWS, Sberbank, Yandex. We also give lecturers at the state and corporate universities. Examples are Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT), Yandex School of Data Analysis (YSDA), Higher School of Economics (HSE), Sberbank Corporate University, Harbour.Space. University, ...

Courses are available online.
