Hi great people.

Planning on career switch to become a Data scientist. I want to ask what's the best programing language to be familiar with as a data scientist.

Which one in particular is needed and important, I don't just want to dabble into R or Phython, need someone who has tried and know which is preferable.

Python and learn python for data science and analysis cause python can be used for many things.

After that learn R and SQL well

Once he is good in Python, I see no reason learning R.

Let him keep it in this progression:
1. Learn Excel
2. Tableau or power BI
3. Learn Python
4. Learn SQL

You will be set

Data science is more than just learning a language my man, you have to be interested in data and how to tell stories from data or search for such stories. What you need first is basic knowledge of statistics, how to interpret plots, and then how to program in SQL.
Finally you go for Python/R and then tableau.

Why do I feel this data science stuff is a bubble that'll soon burst.

Seems everyone is going into it these days but the available roles are very few.

Anyways, me too I'm somewhat interested in it.
