Learn Something New! My introduction to Data Science.

There are so many interesting things to learn and not nearly enough time.

While I am an able technologist and experienced software engineer I am not a data scientist.  I want to learn more about that arena.  Much more.

I also want to explore the world of massive open online courses (MOOCs).

A professor I know who is an expert in data driven analysis (among other things) recommended the Data Science Specialization taught by a team at Johns Hopkins University and offered through Coursera.  That was good enough for me.  I am following the recommended course sequence.  While I am at the front end of the program, so far so good.

iTinker.net is all about exploring technology and implementing small but often complex systems in my home lab as a means to fuel real world work (and not just technology focused work).  The MOOC universe looks like it will become an important tool in my tool kit.

If you are interested in Data Science, check out the Coursera course.  More importantly, if you want to learn more about a topic see if there's a relevant MOOC out there.
