Data Science is a broad inter-disciplenary field which aims to extract insights from data for business decisions. Data Camp is an online platform designed to teach the skills related to data science using interactive platforms based in the many relevant languages (e.g. R, Python, SQL). Their Data Scientist with Python career track consists of 26 courses, starting with an Introduction to Python and ending with Introduction to Network Analysis in Python. Below is a collection of case studies which I found helpful for developing skills and intuition.
