DataCamp now offers two types of Projects: Guided Projects and Unguided Projects.
Unlike our Guided Projects, which include step-by-step tasks to solve real-world problems, Unguided Projects further challenge your data science skills with open-ended problems without the step-by-step tasks.
Working Through Unguided Projects
Although DataCamp's Unguided Projects offer fewer step-by-step tasks, you'll still have the option to select Hint or Show an Answer.
Additionally, some Unguided Projects include a code-along video. The following options are available:
- Watch the code-along video (if applicable):
- Select the option to get a Hint:
- Select the option to Show an Answer:
Note: A hint will reduce your total XP earned, and Show an Answer will remove all earned XP for the Unguided Project.
Unguided Projects will also display whether a code-along session is scheduled in the near future for that specific project. Register and attend our code-along sessions to:
- Follow along
- Ask questions in real-time
- Watch how our instructors solve the Project from scratch
