I’m finally getting around to writing Part 2 of Getting Started in Data Science. The first part can be found here. I made suggestions for university students interested in the field of Data Science. I even made a video about it too.
Pick Two, Master One
Pick two computer languages and become proficient in one and a master at the other one. Or, pick a platform like H2O-Flow or RapidMiner and a language. Become a master at one but proficient in the other. This way you can set yourself apart from other students or applicants.
