Data Science with Python

What is Data Science

In 2012, the Harvard Review named Data Science as the sexiest job of the 21st century.  What makes data science such a hot topic?  The answer is simple, data. Data has become an integral part of our lives and it has become difficult to ignore its potential. In a city like Fremont, CA, there are several corporations that are looking for data scientists to help them harness the potential of data including Tailored Brands, Softsol, Astreya, WAY, Snapwiz, Facebook, Trabajo, SLD Laser, pony.ai, Soraa, Inceptio Technology, SSIT, Central Business Solutions, Quest Groups, Lam Research Corporation, etc. From classifying target audience to improving customer experience across devices and channels, data science offers immense value to businesses.

The top technical skills required to become a data scientist in Fremont, CA, USA, include the following:

  1. Python Coding: One of the most popular languages used in Data Science, Python aids in preprocessing of data and taking different formats of data as input. Its versatility and simplicity gives it an advantage over other programming languages.
  2. R Programming: R programming is another popular language used in the field of data science. It is used as an analytical tool used for solving statistical problems.
  3. Hadoop Platform: Although not a must, knowledge of the Hadoop platform is important for every data scientist. There are several projects in which Hadoop is used.
