Hi, I'd like to send you a DM. How may I contact you? I just want to hear more about your journey. Thanks in anticipation.

Wow! Stumbled upon this thread yesterday and I practically did a vigil on it. I've been interested in data analytics lately as I want to switch careers.
I've been learning excel, python, power bi and sql although it has not been easy combining it with my job but I'm motivated with the stories on this thread.
Thanks Ejiod and everyone that has contributed to this thread

CareerPorte:I would like to chat with you about data science . At also new in the process so I really want personnel in the field to talk to, even if it's a group discussion. Thanks
|Re: Chronicle Of A Data Scientist/analyst by Singingbae(m): 12:42pm On Nov 14|
Anyone to help me why this code is giving me error. I just want to encode a categorical column
|Re: Chronicle Of A Data Scientist/analyst by Marveaux(m): 12:52pm On Nov 14|
Singingbae:"Transformers is not defined",why don't you remove that(transformers) and pass just the tuples instead and see what goes....

Hi guys.. Just to keep the morale high.. Can we get some testimonies from our bosses here. Who had successfully gotten a job, who had made any significant progress....the realities of the day are quite different.
Unfortunately it goes just beyond learning a skill at the moment. You have to demonstrate such skill, network, build a portfolio amongst others
More suggestions and comments are welcome. Cheers!!!

10 Commandments of Data Science
1. Focus mainly on solving the problem and not on tools, technologies, and models.
2. Data will never be clean or easily available. Data gathering and cleaning will take 80% of your time and effort.
3. Don’t underestimate the power of Excel and SQL - they are still two of the most useful tools for data analysis.
4. Simple models such as Linear or Logistic Regression will be good enough for many problems. You don’t need neural networks to solve every problem.
5. Textbook solutions may not work for most of the practical problems. You will need to try new approaches and innovate as required.
6. Nobody can remember everything. On the job, you can always use Google, Stack Overflow etc.
7. Learn Data Visualisation and develop the ability to explain your key insights in simple terms - such skills will be very useful with non-technical and business stakeholders.
8. Learn PowerPoint and storytelling - people may not appreciate your great work if you can’t convince them with your story.
9. Data Science is evolving rapidly. Please learn continuously, else you may become obsolete soon.
10. Focus mainly on solving the problem and not on tools, technologies, and models.

Like d excel part.
|Re: Chronicle Of A Data Scientist/analyst by randomShek: 1:27pm On Nov 17|
CareerPorte:No 2,3 and 8
I’ve been on a project for sometime now and the only tool I’ve been using majorly so far is Microsoft Office and SQL sense.
I say “sense” because I did a lot of joins, merge and yada yada to pull out data from about 20 excel sheets to create a single refreshable report.

CareerPorte:I lost two Job interviews just because I Underrated excel... lol.
Naija recruiters don't care how good you are, as long as you can't use excel, they trash you!
Don't joke with Excel, know this and know peace!

Zabiboy:Hmmm! If you don't mind, please can you list out the learning part one should follow in order to secure a project / job as a web/ mobile app developer. Please

Jupyter notebook has refused to launch. I've used anaconda navigator it just loads but doesn't launch, anaconda prompt just brings up a prompt telling me to copy a link to my browser.
I need it to open directly in my browser like it should.
o use a Windows and Spyder launches but what I want is jupyter.
|Re: Chronicle Of A Data Scientist/analyst by Ejiod(m): 5:05am On Nov 19|
DrinkWater10:Run your system by pressing Windows + R
Then type this
The 1st opens jupyter notebook while the 2nd opens anaconda
|Re: Chronicle Of A Data Scientist/analyst by DrinkWater10: 8:22am On Nov 19|
Ejiod:Thank you for responding.
When I do the first, it brings up a prompt telling me to copy a link to my browser.
The second step opens Anaconda Navigator but when I click on Jupyter notebook it just loads but doesn't open.

Please guys, I need more ideas/processes/options on how to set up a platform to enable a school compute : (1) It's staff payroll (2) Students grade and constantly update it(3)an avenue to send these grade(results) ,other messages to their parent via email.
From what I have looked at so far, I would need to deploy ms Excel and Access.
Can this pass for a data analyst role?
|Re: Chronicle Of A Data Scientist/analyst by Ejiod(m): 2:45pm On Nov 19|
DrinkWater10:To avoid any complex stuff. Just go to your program files and delete it.
Then reinstall a new anaconda
|Re: Chronicle Of A Data Scientist/analyst by GidiCars: 4:00pm On Nov 19|
Stuff like this can be better done using C-sharp. If you know how to write C#, this won't be hard at all. You can easily find codes for this online with just some tweaks and stuff to suit your own task.
|Re: Chronicle Of A Data Scientist/analyst by DrinkWater10: 9:04pm On Nov 19|
Ejiod:All right I will.
|Re: Chronicle Of A Data Scientist/analyst by AnalysisGuru: 9:12pm On Nov 19|
Lastly, someone said, what I cannot create, I don't understand. This should be your goal. By next year i can decide to start sending my CVs out again if this firm doesn't impress and challenge me further.... Lolz.
I have not arrived too. Its a journey, not a destination.

Hi everyone, started reading this thread few weeks ago and mehn, I'm pumped�. I've learned Microsoft excel (started way before I discovered this thread), PowerBI and sql. I think I'm okay with the excel, I watched youtube videos(excelisfun) and took leila gharani course on udemy. Now, I'm not too confident in my powerbi, and sql(only watched coding with mosh 3hrs vid on YouTube). Can anyone please recommend tutorials on Powerbi and sql?
|Re: Chronicle Of A Data Scientist/analyst by randomShek: 5:34pm On Nov 21|
rodhy:For sql -
|Re: Chronicle Of A Data Scientist/analyst by Lemken: 5:41pm On Nov 21|
for power Bi, I would suggest up and running with power Bi ( a nairalander told me this)
for SQL, I used Ms-sql and postgreSQL database design by krill eremenko
|Re: Chronicle Of A Data Scientist/analyst by rodhy(f): 8:05pm On Nov 21|
|Re: Chronicle Of A Data Scientist/analyst by rodhy(f): 8:11pm On Nov 21|
For the powerbi, Is "up and running'' on YouTube?
|Re: Chronicle Of A Data Scientist/analyst by Lemken: 8:19pm On Nov 21|
I actually don't know about YouTube, but below is a link to the the course
|Re: Chronicle Of A Data Scientist/analyst by rodhy(f): 11:04pm On Nov 21|
|Re: Chronicle Of A Data Scientist/analyst by Imakeherdrip(m): 6:13am On Nov 22|
|Re: Chronicle Of A Data Scientist/analyst by Imakeherdrip(m): 6:17am On Nov 22|
Whatever course you're looking for, just get the name from udemy and append "free" to the course:
"Powerbi up and running" + "free"
Google should give you a handful of links to get the course for free if available.
|Re: Chronicle Of A Data Scientist/analyst by zeemahn(m): 8:49am On Nov 22|
Which school? I completed my internship in April. Currently waiting for nysc. I've been learning Data science with my free time.
|Re: Chronicle Of A Data Scientist/analyst by ibromodzi: 11:13am On Nov 22|
zeemahn:Good to know sir, I rep Unilorin.
|Re: Chronicle Of A Data Scientist/analyst by zeemahn(m): 12:36pm On Nov 22|
Great. Its good to have an extra skill so that one can apply for more than 1 type of job. Well done.
