TOP REVIEWS FROM THE DATA SCIENTIST’S TOOLBOX
I really don't know much about this stuff, I think the jury's still out on whether the last four weeks will be helpful in the future. We'll see how much I think I've learned at the end of the course
The course is great for beginners, especially with a focus on the fundamentals of data science and RStudio. It provides a great introduction to Git and Github, which makes it extremely informative.
It's a beginning to a host of different courses that are to be followed after this. It makes up a for a good platform to start off the work on R and how to use version control feature of R via GitHub.
Great Primer for what Data Science is about. It also provides the infrastructure of tools needed. This was what I was after, a way to provide other data scientist hardware and infrastructure support.
