Class Central Data Science Career Guide

Class Central Data Science Career Guide

By David Venturi

September 26, 2016

Class Central’s Data Science Career Guide is a six-piece series that recommends the best MOOCs for launching yourself into the data science industry. The first five pieces recommend the best courses for several data science core competencies (programming, statistics, data analysis, data visualization, and machine learning). The final piece is a summary of those courses and the best MOOCs for other key topics such as data wrangling, databases, and even software engineering.

For each piece, I scour the online course landscape for every single offering for the subject in question, extract key bits of information from their syllabi and reviews, and compile their ratings. For this task, I turn to none other than the open source Class Central community and its database of thousands of course ratings and reviews.

Here are the parts of the series that have been published so far:

  1. The Best Intro to Programming Courses for Data Science
  2. The Best Statistics & Probability Courses for Data Science
  3. The Best Intro to Data Science Courses
