Getting Started With Data Science

Want to be an expert statistician? Great - enjoy the next 10 years of hard work!

What about machine learning? Do you want to be an expert in that? Or what about programming or data visualisation? That'll be 10 years (or more) for each.

Whether you're trying to get started in Data Science or you're already on the path to becoming an expert you're going to need a strong grounding in all of these disciplines. It's safe to say that it's going to take you at least 20 years or more before you can consider yourself to be experienced, proficient and an authority in data science.

It can be daunting, especially if you're just getting started with Data Science.

You're going to have a lot of questions, including:

  • How do I get started in Data Science?
  • What subject should I start with?
  • What skills do I need in these subjects?
  • What is it like to be a data scientist?
  • What do I need to do to get a job in data science?
