Don't know how to be the pdf to you

In Nigeria right now, i don't really think data science is a lucrative field ( i might be wrong).
The only advantage i think is that it will boost your CV is many organizations in Nigeria are looking for those with knowledge of python programing knowledge. you can enroll in w3school (https://www.w3schools.com/) and get a certificate after completing their python courses.
I will talk about the concept of "lucrative field" regarding programing in the last paragraph.
I'm an Accountant that's why I think Data Science is good for my career and profession, am I right ?
Am not going to lie you.. i do not really know much about accountants. I think accounting is all about record keeping and stuffs like that.
I cant answer this part of the question.. Am a physicist..my friends who do data science focused on the aspect of computational physics.
How easy does learning Python makes learning other Languages such as C, C++, Java , JS etc ...
Your fist language if the hardest..others will be easy. All programing language have the same logic behind them. syntax for the above listed languages are similar ( I do not know of JS...hope to learn it someday).
is it easy to combine Data Science and Cybersecurity (Infosec) together or just stick to one ?
Yes.. Cybersecurity and Python fits very well..python also support server side scripting like php which is very useful in Cybersecurity.
As per lucrative fields, it all boils down to your creativity. What can you do with the knowledge you have. Mr A can have all the knowledge in this word and still not be successful. Mr B can have 1/3 of that knowledge and be the world most successful man. Remember it's all about solving problems..creating simpler solution to complex problem. B4 we chart by sending mesages via sms and emails to another..now c how easy charting has become. That's what programing is all about. You look at your surrounding and see what programing your knowledge of programing can improve. I pray someday Nigeria will learn to invest on local developers and promote home-grown solutions to problems. As a Nigerian programs, let programing be your secondary source of income not first..I.e if you are a freelancer. All the best!

Very good points!

Contact this no. 07035956711 @ hackcodecamp. I am presently learning with them. You will be thought professional with it opportunity.

For those serious about app development, Java is your best bet for now.
Note: You will need to learn a little bit of server-side scripting language like PHP to compliment the java. This is useful for security purposeses as you will not want to keep important stuffs in your app-based code but rather keep them is the webserver and have them fetch whenever it's needed by the app. Java have modules to do this but most webserver don't currently have support for them.

Sarita01:Programming no be for olodo.
Just kidding... I believe you can achieve whatever you set your mind to achieve. I always believe programming is more art than science. Just some dedication and creativity would do

kabayomi:Am not entirely sure that's a good advice. I learnt programming on my own and it wasn't entirely fun.
If need be pay someone to mentor you. With a good mentor your learning pace could be tripled.
|Re: How Do I Start Please by ManyThanks(m): 10:57pm On Nov 19|
lawrenzooo:your post opened my eyes. your submission actually got to me as am also planning to learn programming and build apps. Please what programming language would you suggest I focus on.
|Re: How Do I Start Please by lawrenzooo: 11:00pm On Nov 19|
ManyThanks:What kind of apps?

kponkedenge:he said programming bro,none of what you mentioned is a president language
|Re: How Do I Start Please by Sazeals(m): 11:31pm On Nov 19|
you should probably start with python,but if you want to learn for web development , start with HTML and CSS ,if you are going for frontend only learn only HTML and CSS with little js but for backend learn HTML CSS and python with SQL.
frontend is just the design and the UI you see on websites.
back-end is the interactivity of the site e.g commenting, posting,liking, creating accounts and login.
|Re: How Do I Start Please by Dpundict: 11:51pm On Nov 19|
C is killing me but it will end in praise.
|Re: How Do I Start Please by Sirwallace(m): 11:58pm On Nov 19|
Who the Bleep need HTML and CSS to learn SQL?
If you are going into database, you can go straight to SQL or oracle.
If you wanna build website like many Nigerians are into, then HTML, CSS, JS/php/django route will be fine.
If you wanna build mobile/window app, options like python, Ruby, java, JS are there too
Python and R for data science. So pick what fascinate you and practice everyday like your CGPA depends on it.
I wish I had the resources and advice you are having now when I was in your shoe
Most importantly, any language you wanna start with, learn the basics first. The complex part are built from the basics.

You want to kill the poor boy?
Data science, SQL and data structure for a start!
|Re: How Do I Start Please by snickg: 12:21am On Nov 20|
Bro go learn computer maths first. Very important
|Re: How Do I Start Please by Donniefred(m): 7:27am On Nov 20|
We are in the same boat! 2years plus and I'm still learning the basics. It's not easy. One thing about this is that, you need to practice, I mean, practice a LOT! How about we learn this together? I believe it'll be fun. If interested, let's chat on WhatsApp 0 8 one 3 4 3 seven 1 6 eight 7
If you are in Lagos, we could probably meet and practice together too.
|Re: How Do I Start Please by Donniefred(m): 7:28am On Nov 20|
Sheriman:Are you in Lagos? I'd really like us to have a group of beginners learning together.
|Re: How Do I Start Please by Drenix(m): 7:44am On Nov 20|
Even me wey dey learn programming d tin don taya me I swear. Las las na to switch back to graphics. I swear.
|Re: How Do I Start Please by We4all: 8:17am On Nov 20|
I am not in Lagos though. In my case, I haven't really spent much time practicing cos navigating the software was kinda too tasking for me. So, I took a break whilst searching for an expert to guide me.
Have u been able to bring any character to life at all? Are u in intermediary stage or at beginners level? Don't you think it will better if we get an expert to guide us? I tried watching some videos, but wasn't too impressed.

|Re: How Do I Start Please by QuantumR: 10:10am On Nov 20|
start with "python" prog language and also introduction to data science. When you are done learning the basic, then you start learning Python for data science.
if you need resource, youtube is always available.
|Re: How Do I Start Please by ADAMUdaCOWBOY: 10:46am On Nov 20|
QuantumR:Thank you so much.
|Re: How Do I Start Please by Sirwallace(m): 10:52am On Nov 20|
For business analyst, you don't need CSC or statistics infact you don't really need programming per say.
What you need are
1.advanced excel skill(DAX, power pivot and power query)
2. Microsoft power BI
You can go to youtube and search for "MSTPDA" from mike popular known as excel is fun.
That will give you a strong start for the first 2.
