This week I completed Week 3 of Johns Hopkins University’s The Data Scientist’s Toolbox. If you have a technology background then you could complete this class in a day. I thought about taking this course along with the R Programming course but family, kids, work, & training for a marathon made the decision to not take a second class for me.
The course offered some useful reading, good tutorials, and a community of students interested in data science. I’ve decided to continue with the the program. I’ve signed up for the R Programming course, which is the second course in the program that starts on May 4, 2015.
