Apologies guys for the long waiting,been on multiple projects that need strict and dedicated attention, I will be narrating my experience this week.Hopefully this weekend will start typing.
This chronicles will detail my life experience as a data scientist/Analyst even before I got the jobs so newbies can follow through and learn.

Apologies all for this long wait..
Traffic here in Lagos can be mental sapping.
Like I said on the headline,I will be detailed on my journey...
Just to clear all doubt..I didn't study computer science or any computer related field..

TRANSITION PERIOD: After graduating from the university with my BSc Biochemistry...I felt I'm a big boy, I can apply to any firm and start earning big.... Damn, I was wrong...took real stress and effort to even get a teaching job paying less than 20k.....Then it was then I realized what I studied wasn't relevant to Nigeria...It was actually frustrating...I felt I could be better of.. Fast forward I went for MSc thinking I could get a lecturing job but even graduating with a Phd grade of 4.3 I was offered a job of under 50k....
It was then I knew I had to switch for good...
Mind you I always had a knack for computer but never did want to go into it..


Will continue tomorrow..need to rest guys.

2013 back then..I paid one mofo 15k to learn web design grin grin.... one biggest mistake I did..Then he would ask his intern to teach me..just one week I knew I've wasted my money..it was a pure crap..

Guys don't try giving anyone money for training. You can learn this programming on your own with lots of videos out there.Even me self I can't teach you!..

That's how the dude chop my 15k then with nothing gained.. Had to save, got myself a laptop of 22k. Hp6310b... With this small laptop I started teaching myself wordpress. Meanwhile I knew nothing about programming. I stumbled upon Java one day, and it was so complex.I then asked myself what's in this programming stuff.
Had to Google "Top programming languages". Then I saw Javascript ,Python and many others.
I never had anyone to teach or guide me on which to pick.I was deeply in mess trying to understand different languages.
I started with HTML and CSS..After learning this for just 3month.I got a job for a junior web developer..80k was the salary. It felt good. Me that has never earned 30k in my life was now on 80k salary...then I knew I had to learn more..

Asking me how I learn HTML and CSS in just 3months..From YouTube, a dude called Brad traversy and The new Boston were highly influential on this path..Took nights of training to learn it. I started learning Javascript but it was confusing..from ES5 to ES6, vanilla or no vanilla js.. It was just me going back and forth yet I'm a junior web developer..though I could write Javascript a bit..I migrated to Angular 2 then Angular 4...It was interesting learning Angular...



Will continue this evening.... need to start going..

Thanks at Ejiod. I am an msc student currently writimg my thesis. But right now i sort of regret going for the msc. If i had known earlier i would have learnt programming a long time ago. i am interested in data science and right now i am almost done learning sql. I use codecademy and w3schools to learn. I hope to learn more from you and follow your steps in improving myself. Thanks

Evening guys...
Traffic was friendly today sha...



Like I said this morning, being new to programming language it was back and forth..
Took java class... damn java was deep for me.. felt it could take me years to grasp... then to c#... but the day I stumbled upon python that was it!..
It became my language. Had to drop all other language and focus on python. Took python videos for 2months despite my web dev
Then asked after learning python what next...
I started learning django. Was solid to some extent on django. I was feeling fly seeing my self as minor full stack..but it wasn't challenging to me. Searched again the application of python then stumbled upon data science and analysis..
It felt like this was what I wanted..
It took me 1 year to realize that its data science/Analytics I want.

JOURNEY TO DATA SCIENCE


Best website I visited that changed me was FREETUTORIALS.US...
Damn! I could get any course paid for free.
All I need was to get data..
I started doing free night bundle from airtel just to Download these videos. Had 4 different SIM cards for this deadly attack to download free paid videos. Had to learn pandas from head to toe...Migrated to machine learning, then deep learning...... all these while my knowledge on excel was 2%.... it was a pure embarrassment that as an aspiring data scientist I don't know excel that much...That's how I downloaded another video on excel..did the excel for a month including advanced features..

Some of you trying to be data science enthusiast..go and learn EXCEL for 3 to 4wks..it will be helpful for you biko....
After 5months of intensive study and practice on those videos I felt I'm ripe to start applying for data science jobs.... but to my surprise it's like expecting ship to land in an airport.

To tell u guys the truth.. data science job in Nigeria is few... like extremely few. let no one deceive you saying it's a nice booming field..
Didn't get offer but was happy to be scheduled for 2 interviews..

Following those interviews I had to apply for data analyst role..Yes Data analyst.. Then it was easy seeing data analyst jobs....
I applied to different firms who posted their spaces.. out of 5 companies ,3 scheduled me for interview..
An advantage I had was that I use python and SQL for analysis of which most data analyst simply don't use..

I forgot to add... I did SQL too for a week.

Sometimes, torrent download speeds can be really slow due to the number of seeds of the torrent, that's if you've checked that your network is stable and fast.

What torrent download client do you use? uTorrent? Use this video to get optimum download settings for the client.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WY2oJBLDNEk

OR if you could try obtaining the info hash of the torrent, you may be able to get other torrent download sites on Google with more seeds. To do this, submit the info hash in Google search and go through the various results to see the one with more seeds.

A good site for torrents is pirate-bay.net but you want to use a VPN (like Nord or CyberGhost) when downloading the torrent from this site.

Godspeed.

Out of the 3,
One from from lekki asked me to analyze data as assessment of which I pythonize grin it,running pandas and Power BI on it.Had to utilize all my skills to solve the problem.This was a big edge I had over others.Some excel users will be calling theirselves data analyst but they are just far from it... before you knew it,in just a week I got a notification that "Can I resume the following week" with a net pay of 180k. Damn!... I was so so happy... first data analyst job and the best thing about it was that it was remote..No transport, just me in my house and I report to boss every Friday what I've been doing.
Had to share my story too to freetutorials.us because they were helpful with tons of tutorials I downloaded from them.
Fast forward..4 month into the job damn, I started expanding and experimenting my skills. I became more of a Business intelligence developer. Before a year, I've toured round 15 states in Nigeria all by flight....
I loved what I was doing then,but one thing about remote job is that sometimes it may make you lazy and extravagant sometimes. Its then you will be thinking of going to cinema to watch film or event centers......
