Why learn Introduction to Data Science Programming
With Big Data exploding across every industry, data scientists are some of the most in-demand professionals in Australia. Corporate titans like Oracle, Apple and Microsoft have been deliberately scaling their data teams for years, and the McKinsey Global Institute estimates 200,000 data scientist job openings in 2019. The mid-range salary expectations can range up to $147,000, depending on experience.
Even better, job satisfaction for data scientists is consistently peachy, with Glassdoor reports putting the average at 4.2 out of 5.
How does it work
Introduction to Data Science Programming is divided into two ‘tracks’: R and Python. Students can choose which programming language is right for them. Either way, both tracks will cover other fundamental data tools like SQL, Git and Version Control.
This course equips you with fundamental tools used by data scientists around the world: R or Python coding, SQL, command line and Git. Whether you’re new to data or an experienced analyst, this is your chance to upskill. Fast.
Python or R coding, SQL, Command Line, Git, Version Control, Numpy, Pandas, JOINs, Aggregations, data visualisation.
