Understanding the big picture first will set the stage for success in this journey.
Data is one of the biggest new trends in both tech and business in general. Data “experts” are quickly becoming some of the best-paid individuals in the industry, and every single company wants to surf the wave of data capabilities.

What is a data scientist? In short, a person who is better at statistics than any software engineer and better at software engineering than any statistician.
