What is DataCamp Workspace?

Workspace is a cloud-based data notebook that allows you to experiment with code, analyze data, collaborate with others and share insights with no installation required.

Every workspace runs in a fully-managed, cloud-hosted environment with R / Python, built-in support for SQL and all commonly used data science packages pre-installed. If you need more, you can easily install additional packages. Learn more in Working with packages.
Workspace makes collaboration seamless. You can invite people through email or share a link. They can now jump in and edit or comment on your work in real-time. Learn more in Sharing a workspace.
Workspace makes connecting to external databases a breeze. Set up the connection once and access data in any workspace. Write your query in a SQL cell; the result will be available as a data frame so you can continue your analysis. Learn more in SQL cell.
With the chart cell, you can create a beautiful chart of any data frame without code. Super-useful for quick data exploration and for creating sleek visuals to share with your peers. Learn more in Chart cell.

Is Workspace for me?

Workspace is for learners

After learning new concepts in courses, you can switch over to workspace to practice and apply what you've learned in Workspace. You can pick a dataset from the list to start your next data science project or explore the library of templates. Public workspaces will automatically appear on your DataCamp profile so you build a data science portfolio that others can easily explore.

Workspace is for data professionals

Because Workspace makes accessing data and collaboration so easy, it's the perfect tool to get insights from your company data: just hook up a database or upload a dataset, and start digging. If you need help from a colleague, you can just add them as an editor to your workspace to collaborate in real-time. When your report is ready, you can easily share it with other people in your org for review.
