Data Science with Python

What is Data Science

Dallas is home to many leading companies, including Finoit, Diceus, Intelegain Technologies, RailsCarma, gotcha!, IBEE Solutions, etc. and all these companies are looking for data scientists to make decisions on product and operating metrics. Because of the exclusivity of skills, the average salary for a Data Scientist is $107,806 per year in Dallas, TX. 

Below are the top skills you need to become a data scientist-

  • Python Coding: Python is a popular programming language used in the field of data science - it takes various formats of data and helps in the processing of this data. 
  • SQL database and coding: SQL is an easy-to-learn query language that works on structured data and retrieves data that will be fed to an analytical tool.
  • R Programming: It is an analytical tool that works on the retrieved raw data to arrive at actionable insights. R is an integrated suite of software facilities for data manipulation, mining and calculations. It is an important skill as over 43% of data scientists employ R language for their analysis.
  • Hadoop Platform: Hadoop is a software framework used for big data computation. It processes big data stored in distributed systems.
  • Apache Spark: Apache Spark is also a big data computation platform, not unlike Hadoop. The difference is that Apache Spark is faster, because Spark makes caches of its computations in the system memory, while Hadoop reads and writes to the disk. And owing to this difference, data science algorithms run faster on Apache.
  • Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence: These are the brains powering recommendation systems that build prediction algorithms using the data and identifying patterns to explore. Some of the concepts used in ML/AI are
      • Reinforcement Learning
      • Neural Network
    • Adversarial learning 
    • Decision trees
    • Machine Learning algorithms
    • Logistic regression 
  • Data Visualization: 

Visualization tools such as d3.js, Tableau, ggplot and matplotlib aid a data scientist in the conversion of complex results obtained as a result of the processes performed on a data set and converts them into a comprehensible visual format.

  • Working with unstructured data:

With diverse datasets coming in, working with unstructured data aids to the 360-degree approach expected of a data scientist. Unstructured data is content that is not labelled and organized into database values such as videos, social media posts, audio samples, customer reviews, blog posts etc.

A successful Data Science professional has the following behavioral traits:

  • Curiosity – As a data scientist, you will be playing with a huge amount of data. To make sense out of it and derive insights, you must have curiosity.
  • Clarity – As a data scientist, you need to have clarity at all times, whether you are cleaning data or writing code. You must be aware of what you are doing and why you are doing at every step.
  • Creativity – A data scientist must be creative to know what is missing from the data and what should be done to get the desired results. This involves developing new features, tools for analysis and ways for data visualization.
  • Skepticism – Skepticism is also an important skill for a data scientist to possess so that they stay in the real world and not get carried away with their creativity.

There are many benefits of ‘Sexiest job of the 21st century’ by Harvard Business review:

  • High Pay- The average salary for a Data Scientist is $107,806 per year in Dallas, TX.
  • Good bonuses- Apart from good pay, you also get good bonuses based on skills and experience. 
  • Mobility- As most of the leading companies are based in the developed countries, you will get a chance to move to these places.
