    An excellent course. Teaches not only the nuisance of using ChatGPT but how to get the most output from interacting with it. Since after taking the course, I have put ChatGPT to use use in my every-day work activities, and has been enjoying immense time saving with professional results from ChatGPT use. Thanks DataCamp Team, for the free Week Access initiative.
