Okay, thanks. I'll watch out for it.

Me? Lol just html and little CSS. I don't think python will be hard for me too. I have some knowledge on pascal. Syntax wouldn't be hard for me to grasp.

It seems you have some interest in Web development too.
Yeah. I had started learning Django, the Python framework for web dev, but they were mentioning HTML a lot, so I had to pause for a while and go learn html alongside CSS. I think I'll add JavaScript at once. I'm also learning the data science frameworks too. I see you're interested in just the data science aspect ?

I'm interested in both. I have some personal Web dev projects I want to execute. Also, while fully data science, nothing wrong if a brother occasionally makes some money off freelance web dev jobs grin

Absolutely. I'm looking to offer web dev services on freelance sites for a start. Then maybe push further by mastering either data science or mobile app development.

The most important thing for me though, is that I'm enjoying the learning process and the amazing things you can do with these technologies. smiley

Yea, there's a lot to with these technologies. Will you be sticking with python for web dev or you're going to learn php as well?

PHP is quite popular among web devs from the research I've made on Upwork and Fiverr, so I'll definitely get in there too.

You know, I'm not learning them one after the other. I want to learn like 4 of them, simultaneously. Like I'm doing school courses yeah?
I'll allocate hours to each of them daily. Like a timetable you get? So I'll do HTML/CSS and JavaScript today, then PHP and Python the next day, because if I wanna take them singly, I'd end up forgetting the ones I've learnt previously grin. So I get to touch on each of them at least for 4 hours a week. That's my study strategy. What's yours? smiley

That's some serious work.
I haven't started though. I'm working on some project now and I'll be done in two weeks.

Daejoyoung:

The problem is that the word Data Science and Data Analysis are used interchangeably sometimes even by firms.
SQL is a query language for database administration used in business analysis, data analysis and backend web development.
Pure Data Science may involve all of data analysis( which may require SQL) as well as programming/ machine learning for some, while for others it may exclude the aspect of data analysis. But most people usually think that if you are a data scientist, you also know every aspect of data analysis.

Here you go

Thanks for calling me here, my man. I'm now more motivated to look into this data science field. E be like say money plenty for theregrin

Off to Google to do more research.

EDIT: I'll do web dev first, to makes some bucks off of freelancing, then I'll do data science on the side, mainly to get a remote job or even for contract freelancing. I don't really like working for people, except maybe international firms cool

I feel like I have a clearer picture of what I wanna do, every time I chat with you lol. What are your plans? smiley
Do you really think it's possible to master Web dev and Data science alongside? I just have a feeling you wouldn't be very rounded in any of two because your energies will be divergent. But then, there are always exceptions to some rules.

I also have plans for web development but I'll start with python/django. Then I'll dive into javascript/php while learning. Meehn I really want to work from home. Freelancing or working remotely for coys. Make man still get time run business. gringrin
It seems you've decided to major in Web dev

I had to bring it here so that we don't derail that thread.

Okay i get it. Well, I think web dev is really flexible and that's great for freelancing.I just want to get started with it and then expand into other lucrative fields even if it means going on to get a masters degree or diploma in CS.

I'm just super interested in this whole software world; From embedded to data science to mobile apps to games dev.I'll take on as much as I can bro.

I regret why I didn't start earlier, like during my teenage years grin

I seem to be all over the place with python. What learning resources did you employ during yours?

For books(PDFs, epubs);

a)Automate the boring stuff with python.(I started out with this one)
b)Python crash course.
c) A smarter way to learn python. (This one's easier to follow but not challenging enough)

Videos;
Python tutorials with Mosh Hammedani. A 6-hour long video tutorial available on YouTube. Holds your hand all the way from python installation, to setting up the IDE, to projects. cool

An alternative is the one from freecodecamp. That one's four hours.

Re: Data Science Or Cyber Security? by IceColdVeins(m): 2:00pm On Dec 03, 2019
W3schools.com for Sql and python
Free and easy to assimilate
You mind if we connect? I need a career buddy

It's been great o. Although it's been difficult focusing due to the fact that I'm writing my thesis too in school. I have been using a crash course 8n python. I love the author. Then I was also using mosh's video Sha. But e get one day when mosh provoke me. This moment he was telling me how to create a list, the next moment he is asking me to build an atomic bomb in an exercise. I had to stop using the video, it was making me feel like I wasn't picking much. When I'm done with books I will go back to the video.

How far na. You dey celebrate Christmas? If you do , compliment of the season.

Christmas? yeah sure. I no dey miss celebrations o. It's a short and unpredictable life we live, so I make the most out of it. Compliment of the season to you too. cool

Hello.

These are the books, automate the boring stuff by Al steigwart, A Crash course in Python by mathes. Google search these books and download them.

On YouTube, search for mosh hamedani, you would find a 6hr python video he did.
