Insider help for busy aspiring data scientists

Become relevant with Data Science!

To be ready for tomorrow's world from today, what we need is clear: data skills.

Let's get started!

This might sound familiar

you feel like your current skills are not as useful anymore

you want tobe a prominent part of today's world

you're looking for ways toupgrade yourself and become relevant

but you don't have time for ineffective learning methods

you need a way to guide your efforts and stay in focus

you want to know that you are doing the right things

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 and YouTube videos, interviewing data professionals on my podcast and preparing hands-on courses to help you pave your own path.
