I am a SQL developer (working in psnnsylvania with H1B ) and would like to enter into analytics. Started learning python & R with machine learning, data analysis. Please suggest me a path / team / training / startup opportunities to explore and learn Data Science. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I am ready to join in internship programs too if that is the best way to learn real-time problems. Thanks you!
One great place to start is Coursera. The courses offered by John Hopkins University is a great starting point that covers the basic theory and skills. Also, this is a great article listed out all free resources on Data Science Central:
Hope it helps!
Hi Ram, I would say your decision on a career change from SQL to Data Science will be one of your life changing decision. I say this because of the demand for Data Science out there. Reports shows that Data Scientist has turned out to be the hottest IT technology of 2016. When you plan for a career change is very important to learn about the pros and cons, simply because its your career.
