Data Scientist, Note to self

Reading other people’s blogs

It’s really nice to find blogs of people who are passionate in data.  Most of them have so much experience as developers or database engineers and are determined to move forth with their ideal job of becoming a data scientist.

Latest blog I found is from http://devnambi.com/, a link that came up on my Google alerts for all things related to “data scientist”.  Learnt that there is a Data Science certificate program from the University of Washington.  Oh how I would love to go for the 9 month course in Seattle.  It’s not too costly, but no student visa makes is a huge obstacle. Not to mention that my last semester would have also began by then.

So for the last semester the modules I might read are:

  1. Multivariate data analysis
  2. Statistical methods: Theory/Applications
  3. High dimensionality data analysis
  4. Knowledge discovery and data mining

Unfortunately 1 and 4 clashes.  So have to pick either 1 or 4 and the remaining 2 and 3.  Can’t wait for classes to start.

Recently been looking at Kaggle again, after the hiatus due to holiday and D3-ing.  In the meantime, I’m just wishing for the heat to go away and more luck!
