Hi there! I am Mısra,

I am a data scientist and I want to help you have a smooth transition into data science.

Before getting into data science I was working with robots and other branches of artificial intelligence for the fun of it. When I decided to become a data scientist professionally, I came across many barriers that lay between a motivated person and a data science career. Some of which being misinformation, infinite number of courses and a lack of clear information about fundamental data science knowledge.

On this website, my goal is to guide you on your journey so that you can make smart decisions about what to learn and how to learn it. This way, you can acquire the relevant skills without getting distracted by any buzzwords and keep your focus throughout.
I will be your guide by sharing my knowledge through articles, interviewing data professionals on my podcast and preparing hands-on courses so that you can pave your own path.
