you want to switch to a data science career
but the field is a mystery to you
because it looks like the amount of things to learn is endless
you feel overwhelmed in a sea of information
and you're not sure which direction will be worth your time
you have trouble bringing everything you learned together
even though you study hard you don't feel solid progress
you feel intimidated by the insane data science job descriptions
you need a way to guide your efforts and stay in focus
you want to know that you are doing the right things
This is a start-to-finish guided project course.
As you go through the course, you build a data science project and at the end of the course, you will have a portfolio-worthy project to share with the world, already on your GitHub account, all ready to present!
This course is prepared to act as a guide to aspiring data scientists during the first steps of their journey.
The goal of the course is to help you identify clear goals and stay focused when learning data science. There are three modules in the course:
