The goal of good data science is to produce a strong understanding of a problem or idea, and to build useful models based on that understanding. In order to do that effectively, it’s essential that you have the right skills, tools, and analysis techniques available.
Practice Python programming
Python provides great functionality for people who routinely deal with maths, statistics, and scientific functions as part of their work. It’s become incredibly popular within data science over recent years as the code takes less time to develop than other programming languages, speeding up the development process and offering more efficiency across departments.
