I'm pumped to earn the CCP Data Scientist credential! It holds true weight in the market because it replicates a real, sufficiently difficult big data scenario I would see on the job and requires a professional-level approach to solving problems. The exam captured all the relevant elements of data science and machine learning, and the Challenge made the experience completely non-trivial.

The objective is to evangelize data science and analytics concepts and technologies and instantiate solutions at scale for our customers.

David F. McCoy

Data science is a half-scientific, half-engineering pleasure. There is the eureka factor of scientific investigation paired with the design satisfaction of coding.

Stuart Horsman

I joined Cloudera after earning CCP-DS and now get to think about, gain experience with, and help customers address real big data challenges in the wild.
