I didn’t get in the data science to get a new job, though that happened. I didn’t get into data science to teach other people what I know, though that happened too.
I got into data science to make my life easier.
At the time my job consisted of taking information from one system, verifying it with a third-party service, and ensuring these two things matched up. I was having a lot of fun every day going to work and playing the Excel jockey. Thankfully I learned there was a much better way of doing what I was doing.
That way was data science.
When I first got into data science and machine learning I had literally no idea what I was doing. I had no background in math or statistics. It was like traveling into the 5th dimension trying to figure out everything I needed to do.
Now this was back before there were many resources on all this stuff. The books that were available assumed you already had a huge amount of knowledge. I didn't.
So I sifted through literally hundreds of blog post, books, and videos in order to figure out how to do the one simple thing I wanted to do – create a predictive model, and ultimately make my job easier.
Fast forward a number of years to today.
Today we are overwhelmed by the amount of online courses, blog post, videos, and information coming from all sides. Today the challenge isn’t finding the information, it's having information that you can take action on, and as we software engineers like to say, do it in production.
That’s what my Introduction to Data Science for Software Engineers course is all about.
In this course I take you through all the steps you need to be able to take a real-world dataset, clean it up, run machine learning algorithms on it, and report what you've learned.
We cover supervised learning, unsupervised learning, and deep learning. We cover Python, Docker, Spark, and more.
It's the full monty.
The entire focus of this course is to give you a broad understanding of data science, and enough hands-on experience that you can put data science to work for you in a very short amount of time.
To help you down this journey and in the spirit of Thanksgiving and Black Friday, I am offering my course at a huge discount of 53%.
I look forward to you helping you on your journey.
