What you will learn

Understand the basics of Data Science and Analytics

Understand how to use Python and Scikit learn

Get a good understanding of all buzz words like "Data Science", "Machine learning", "Data Scientist" etc.


Are you completely new to Data science?

Have you been hearing these buzz words like Machine learning, Data Science, Data Scientist, Text analytics, Statistics and don't know what this is?

Do you want to start or switch career to Data Science and analytics?

If yes, then I have a new course for you. In this course, I cover the absolute basics of Data Science and Machine learning. This course will not cover in-depth algorithms. I have split this course into 3 Modules. This module, takes a 500,000ft. view of what Data science is and how is it used. We will go through commonly used terms and write some code in Python. I spend some time walking you through different career areas in the Business Intelligence Stack, where does Data Science fit in, What is Data Science and what are the tools you will need to get started. I will be using Python and Scikit-Learn Package in this course. I am not assuming any prior knowledge in this area. I have given some reading materials, which will help you solidify the concepts that are discussed in this lectures.

This course will the first data science course in a series of courses. Consider this course as a 101 level course, where I don't go too much deep into any particular statistical area, but rather just cover enough to raise your curiosity in the field of Data Science and Analytics.

The other modules will cover more complex concepts. 



What is Data Science and Machine Learning?

Getting setup with Tools

Getting Started with Python and Scikit-Learn

The course and the delivery were okay for me, except that because I am not data science or statistics person, and needed more time to flow. Time to read the refences are enormous. I also had some challenges when carrying your steps on my own. A couple of error messages (e.g. ModuleNotFoundError, ImportErrors etc) which I think is from the Anaconda distribution pack downloaded (e.g Jupyter bundle) that is incomplete. Thanks

Really, I like the way he taught the concept in easy way. But I want you to go little deeper to more understanding. Thank you

Apt course for one trying to get a first insight into data science. Content was quite good, well explained w.r. to pace and depth, knowing already some basic python, it helped me to try out the exercises too. Thanks and hoping to do more courses in these topics.

It was too professional course, basically I would need more basic knowledge to continue this approach. However, it was very informative and Thank you.

This is a good start to get acquainted with data science. It was simple enough for beginner but not too dummy down for people with previous knowledge in statistic and python. I liked the reading assignments and quizzes given.

Its really nice to start with this course but you need to deep dive to understand more about basics of data science. This will motivate you to learn more and more.

it was an amazing course for Beginners. Got what I was looking for. Got the idea about data science. Thank you Sir....
