Data Science with Python

What is Data Science?

If there is a job that is in demand in the 21st century, it is that of a Data Scientist. User data is highly valuable these days, with major companies like Facebook and Google selling them to companies for advertisement purposes. As a result, companies know what you like and what you don’t. Accordingly, they recommend you products, even if you haven’t enquired about it in the first place. 

It is clear that Data Science is in high demand in Washington right now. Companies like Amazon Web Services, Booz Allen Hamilton, People (Technology and Processes), Addx Corporation, CGI Group, Inc., Central Intelligence Agency, Salient CRGT, York and Whiting, etc. are hiring data scientists right now at a handsome pay.

Other reasons behind the popularity of data science include:

  • There is an increase in the demand for data-driven decisions.
  • Data scientists are the highest paid professionals in the tech field.
  • The high rate of data collection means there is a need for faster data analysis for getting the most out of data, which is the expertise of data scientists.

Washington is home to several universities that offer Data Science programs including Bellevue College, City University of Seattle, Seattle University, University of Washington, etc. These courses will help you acquire the technical skills required to make it big in the field of Data Science.

Some of the top skills required for becoming a data scientist in Washington include:

  • Python Programming: In the data science field, Python is one of the most commonly used programming languages. It is a simple and versatile language that allows processing of different formats of data. Data scientists can create datasets with Python and perform operations on them
  • R: Data scientists are required to have a good understanding of analytical tools like R programming for solving data science problems. A knowledge of R is always beneficial in the field of data science
  • Hadoop Platform: Knowledge of Hadoop platform isn’t a strict requirement in the field; however, it is still heavily preferable. It is a skill that is highly valued for the job.
  • SQL: SQL allows data scientists access, communicate and work on data. With its help, data scientist can understand the structure and formation of database. MySQL has concise commands which saves time and reduces technical requirement for performing database operations.
  • Machine Learning and AI: In the field of data science, proficiency in Machine Learning and AI is very much a prerequisite for a career. Certain  concepts that you need to be familiar with include:
    • Neural Networks
    • Decision trees
    • Reinforcement Learning
    • Adversarial learning
    • Logistic regression
    • Machine Learning algorithms
  • Apache Spark: Apache Spark is similar to Hadoop in the sense that it is a big data computation. It is faster than Hadoop because it makes use of caches of its computation in system memory instead of reading and writing to the disk. Therefore, with the help of Apache Spark, data science algorithms can run faster. It is also helpful while handling large and complex unstructured datasets. It also prevents loss of data and operates at high speed. Data scientists can carry out projects using Apache Spark with much ease.
  • Data Visualization: Data scientists are expected to be able to visualize data with the help of tools like Tableau, d3.js, matplotlib and ggplot. With the help of these tools, data scientists can convert complex results from data set processing into an easily understandable format. Through data visualization, organizations can directly work on data. It also helps data scientists gain insights from data and its outcomes.
  • Unstructured Data: A data scientist should know how to work with unstructured data, which has both unlabelled and unorganized content. Examples of such data include audio, video, social media posts, blog posts, etc.

Some behavioural traits a data science professional should have include:

  • Curiosity: You need to have the curiosity and eagerness to learn what it takes to deal with massive data on a regular basis.
  • Clarity: If you are someone who is constantly confused with questions, data science isn’t the field for you. In data science, you need to have clarity while doing anything, be it writing codes or cleaning up data.
  • Creativity: From visualizing data to developing new tools, you need to be creative to become successful in data science.
  • Scepticism: The difference between a data scientist and a normal creative mind is the presence of scepticism to stay grounded in the real world.

The corporations that are employing Data Scientists in Washington,DC include Advanced Decision Vectors, Optimal Solutions Group, The Buffalo group, Teracore, Bixal, Big League Advance, Atlas Research, Gallup, Penn Schoen Berland, Cerebri AI, The Rock Creek Group, etc.

  • A strong background in STEM (Science/Technology/Engineering/Management)- 0 point.
  • Weak STEM background, such as biochemistry, biology, economics, etc.- 2 points
  • Non-STEM background- 5 points
  • Python programming experience less than 1 year in total- 3 points
  • No job experience in coding- 3 points
  • Lack of capability to learn independently- 4 points
  • Not understanding that this scorecard follows a regression algorithm- 1 point.

Programming knowledge is a must for any aspiring data scientist because:

  • Analysing data sets: Programming helps data scientists to analyse large amounts of data sets
  • Statistics: The knowledge of statistics is not enough. Knowing programming is required to implement the statistical knowledge.
  • Framework: The ability to code allows data scientists to efficiently perform data science operations. It also allows them to build frameworks that organizations can use for visualizing data, analysing experiments and managing data pipeline.
