Starting Datacamp Data Scientist Career Track

I have taken a number of courses on DataScience and Statistics using Python and R from Coursera. I also bought a subscription to DataCamp, but hadn’t started it yet.

I’ve enjoyed the Coursera courses and love the idea of combining my passion for math, science, and technology into a career as a Data Scientist.

Yesterday I started DataCamp’s Data Scientist Career Track. It is a 67 hour track, and I plan to spend 3 to 4 hours a day on it.

While I participate in the course I will incorporate Amazon Web Services’ cloud infrastructure so that I can continue learning AWS to become a certified solutions architect.

Completed 1st Course: Intro to Python for Data Science

I’ve completed the 1st course in the Data Scientist Career Track: Intro to Python for Data Science.

The course is divided into 4 sections:

  • Python Basics
  • Python Lists
  • Functions and Packages
  • NumPy

I’ve been coding in Python for a couple of years and tutor students so this is a review for me. However, I don’t use NumPy regularly and forget at times just how wonderful it is. It was great to get a refresher on NumPy.
