Ross McLean

"The best thing I've found about my course, so far, is being able to actually look at massive amounts of data and be able to extract value from that. So instead of just looking at a bunch of numbers, a bunch of text, I'm actually able to see potential patterns and actually be able to figure out what's happening with that data."
