Data Scientist Toolbox Course Complete

I have completed the Data Scientist Toolbox course and have received my certificate. I am currently waiting for the grading process to complete with R Programming.  I completed this course with distinction.

I have been putting my rudimentary skill to use at work.  You can check out what I have done on GitHub (https://github.com/mikeasilva/cgr-work).

Code School’s Try R

I just signed up for Code School’s Try R course.  I won’t be able to get to it because after finishing Coursera’s Data Scientist’s Toolbox course I quickly enrolled in the R Programming course.  I was able to accomplish the first week’s quiz with the knowledge I gained through DataCamp’s course.  I’ll give a review of Code School’s course once I have had a chance to try it.

Aside

Finished The Data Scientist’s Toolbox

I have wrapped up The Data Scientist’s Toolbox course on Coursera.  I thought is was a great introductory course.  Though a lot of the concepts were not new to me it was a great refresher.  They also pointed out a few tools that I didn’t know about.  I would recommend this course to anyone looking to get in the field.  I am moving on to the R Programming course.

Udacity’s Intro to Data Science Course

As you probably can tell by my background, I am a proponent of self-education.  I want to pass on a link to Udacity’s Intro to Data Science Course.  Udacity offers higher education courses through the internet.

I have just finished the first lesson which provides an introduction to the field.  I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in learning more about the field.


Update: I have created a page that will house resources for you to learn more. It is located at: https://buddingdatascientist.wordpress.com/resources/.
