I got train for data science for four months in an education institution and learned basic Python skills (e.i. how to use libraries such as Statsmodels or Scikit-learn) and some mathematical knowledge of statistics and probabilities. I think I need more knowledge and skill but confusing what should be first. Which should be first? Coding skills, algorithm or math? #computer #math #computer-science

That's great you have basic concept of the Data science. As you know there is a lot of scope for a career in data science, the knowledge of these languages play a major role in building your Career in Data Science. Programming is a must in all the fields these days. Especially when you are dealing with data. But having knowledge only in programming don't yield you much. To consider this, let's take a look at the general question that might arise. I would suggest go for some online courses.

Skills You’ll Need: Knowledge of algorithms, statistics, mathematics, and broad knowledge of programming languages such as R and Python. Broad knowledge of how to structure a data problem, from framing the right questions to ask, to communicating the results effectively.

Hi!


I have gained my most valueable experience from doing.


My suggestion is to first bet your hands dirty with datacamp: (there is an education license so you can ask your teacher to make you a free account)

https://www.datacamp.com/groups/education


Then if you done the Python track, you can try yourself out in a few projects then go to kaggle, and do a few competition, learn from others :)

Bence recommends the following next steps:

  • DataCamp Python Data Science Track with education license (https://www.datacamp.com/groups/education)
  • DataCamp projects for a few weeks.
  • Kaggle challenges (https://www.kaggle.com/)

In addition to prob and stats, learn linear algebra as well. In addition, there is an art form to it as well. This involves presenting your findings and results. Learn to use Jupiter notebook. Learn graphing libraries like matplotlib, seaborn. Also try to learn the domains you will be solving problems for. Get basic understanding from books, trade mags, experts in the fields. Good luck!

Gus recommends the following next steps:

  • Learn graphic libraries
  • Gain basic domain knowledge
