There are several institutions in Baltimore, MD that offer degrees in Data Science including the Johns Hopkins University, Loyola University, Notre Dame of Maryland University, and University of Maryland. As a data scientist one must be aware of multiple programming languages, be a pro at coding, and master platforms for sorting and analyzing data. The top skills that are needed to become a data scientist include the following:

  • Academic Qualifications 
  • Python Coding
  • R Programming
  • SQL Database and Coding
  • Hadoop Platform
  • Apache Spark 
  • Machine learning and AI 
  • Data Visualisation

  1. Academic Skills: Most data scientists have a Master's degree or Ph.D., some might even opt for virtual classes to learn a special skill like how to use Hadoop or Big Data querying. To get into data science, one must have a postgraduate degree in mathematics, astrophysics, AI, Data engineering, coding or other related fields. Furthermore, you should also be well-versed in handling projects. 
  2. Python Coding: Python is a basic and intuitive platform for beginners who want to develop simple and functional data sets. It is a versatile, flexible and scalable programming language that works well on all platforms and devices. Plus, the platform performs several other functions like integrating data from various sources, sorting unstructured data and gathering insights that make data analysis easier and far more effective. 
  3. R Programming: R programming is an analytical tool that is used by data scientists to curate, sort and store massive volumes of data into structured units and logical data sets. The platform enables quicker and hassle-free problem solving, faster analysis and yields accurate results from the insights thus gained. 
  4. Hadoop Platform: Mastering Hadoop is an added advantage for data scientists. It is not a mandatory requirement but it sure makes your job a lot easier. it is an open source cloud-based platform that allows data scientists to create separate data sets, sort data and create algorithms.

Data Science With Python Baltimore, Maryland

Read on to know why Python is best for beginners; 

  • Python is an open source and flexible platform, the OOPS framework is easy and user-friendly.
  • The syntax is readable, comprehensive and intuitive 
  • Python offers an extensive range of resources and features 
  • The Python community is expansive, helpful and replete with help blogs and tutorials

techniques and platforms commonly used; which include:

R Programming: R is an open source software that allows users to compute huge data sets, get statistical insights, create custom graphics and more. The platform has a steep learning curve but is extremely quick and effective once you understand it. It includes; 

  • Top-notch data packages, statistical analysis models, optimized templates,
  • The package is widely connected to multiple networks, over 8000 till date that ensures visibility and boosts performance. 
  • Viva GGPLOT, Visual tools for smooth matrix handling  

Python: Python is an easily accessible data tool great for analyzing, arranging and integrating data into complicated data sets and creating advanced algorithms. It is among the most sought after platform by most data scientists. this is because: 

  • Open source platform offers greater flexibility and customization options
  • Comes with special features like Scikit learn, sensor flow and Pandas for quick and effective data analysis 

SQL: SQL or structured query language comes easy for every data scientist and for good reason. The platform allows users to arrange data, edit the unstructured, creating relational databases and more. One can even store databases, retrieve old data sets, and gain quick and immediate insights. Other perks include:

  • Versatile, flexible, time-efficient and easy to handle 
  • Great for multitasking 

Java: JAVA runs on the JVM or Java Virtual Machine Platform and is used by almost all MNCs and Corporations to design backend systems and applications. Some advantages of using Java are; 

  • Java runs on OOPS framework, is optimized for all platforms and hence easy to customize. 
  • Users can edit and design codes for both frontend and backend applications 
  • Plus, it is easy to compile data using Java 

Scala: Scala is based on JVM and hence is an ideal choice for data scientists to run massive data sets. The coding interface, intuitive tools, and a powerful static tape framework makes the platform even more reliable; 

  • Scala supports Java and other OOPS platforms 
  • It is also used along Apache Spark and other high-performance programming languages.

Here are a few simple and effective steps using which one can download and install Python 3 on your Windows platform; 

Downloading Python 3: First, check whether your desktop is compatible with the new version of Python 3. Windows do not usually come with a Python program pre-installed. Visit the download page for Python, python.org and click on the link for the Latest Python 3 Release - Python 3.6.5. You then have to scroll to the GUI installer and select from either Windows x86-64 executable installerfor 64-bit or Windows x86 executable installerfor 32-bit. 

One can also get the platform via Anaconda. Once you have downloaded the setup to the desktop, the next step is to install it. For that you need to update the setup tools and run the python -m pip install -U pip

Installing Python in Mac OS X devices is even easier, you simply have to go to the official website of Python and get the program through a .dmg package. We would also suggest the homebrew platform that is far more dependable and risk-free. 

  • To install python you need to install brew and need the Apple Xcode package which can be procured using the $ Xcode-select –install command. 
  • An alternative way to Install brew package using /usr/bin/ruby -e "$
  • (curl -is https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
  • Install the latest version of the program and ten confirm the version, 
  • We would also recommend installing the virtual.env which will help create separate programs and framework for different versions.

I feel Knowledgehut is one of the best training providers. Our trainer was a very knowledgeable person who cleared all our doubts with the best examples. He was kind and cooperative. The courseware was designed excellently covering all aspects. Initially, I just had a basic knowledge of the subject but now I know each and every aspect clearly and got a good job offer as well. Thanks to Knowledgehut.
