Science 2 Data Science

Science 2 Data Science (S2DS) is an industry-sponsored course with the aim of leading graduates with a quantitative background into the industry of data analytics and data science.

The S2DS program has at least two components: During the first six days of the program we hear about technologies and methodologies that are deemed essential for practicing data science, and most of the remaining time we work in small teams on specific projects with the industry partners of the program.

On the following pages I try and summarize what I learned at this course with the intention of keeping a legible record of the topics we hear about and giving me the opportunity to expand upon certain aspects by linking to relevant information elsewhere.

You can read more about the course at s2ds.org or follow the Twitter hash tag for the 2014 intake here.
