Teaching Data Science Essentials with Python or R
Live Webinar on Wednesday, December 8, 2021 @ 3 PM ET | 12 PM PT
Presented by: Anh Le, Computer Science Curriculum Developer & Kevin Noelsaint, Computer Science Curriculum Developer
Data Science is one of the fastest-growing fields in the current economy. In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that the data science field will grow about 28% through 2026. However, the supply for data scientists and analysts is low compared to the demand for them. This imbalance is likely due to the lack of data science programs since research reveals that a majority of those who transition into the field are self-taught and are from other programs such as business, psychology, and life sciences (towardsdatascience). Codio believes that data science can be learned and appreciated by anyone, regardless of their programming background. This session will cover our approach to easing learners into the data science field through a hands-on and step-by-step process.
This instructional webinar features and demonstrates:
- How Codio integrates Spyder (Python) and RStudio (R) to enhance the learning experience
- Codio’s hands-on approach to data analysis
- Creation of some of the most common and effective data visualization models
- Image similarity algorithm that compares visualization models
- Using Jupyter as a tool to visualize, explore and present data
