Data Science Course part 1: Data Scientist Toolbox

So after a class project, someone suggested I learn some R. After digging around a bit on the internet, I found the Coursera Data Science Specialization. It looked good.

The first class was The Data Scientists Toolbox class. It was good. The goal was to get students experience with hands on work in git and with Github. It also got the students ready on the software for R, by installing R and R-Studio.

I had to drop the second class, the R class, due to some issues that came up. I got bogged down during week 2 and wasn’t able to devote any time to the studies. I’ll take the class again when I can actually spend time focusing on it.
