About the Course

What are some of the most popular data science tools, how do you use them, and what are their features? In this course, you'll learn about Jupyter Notebooks, JupyterLab, RStudio IDE, Git, GitHub, and Watson Studio. You will learn about what each tool is used for, what programming languages they can execute, their features and limitations. With the tools hosted in the cloud on Skills Network Labs, you will be able to test each tool and follow instructions to run simple code in Python, R or Scala. To end the course, you will create a final project with a Jupyter Notebook on IBM Watson Studio and demonstrate your proficiency preparing a notebook, writing Markdown, and sharing your work with your peers....

It serves perfecty its aim that is giving a first glance of the open course tools for data science. Of course each tool is briefly touched and it hands over the student the duty to deepen each tool.

To the contrast of other reviews, I find the content very well bifurcated and fed to the learners. The course very easily digestable and I have had a great amount of fun learning it.. Go for it!!!!

There's a part in week three where the tutorial videos don't resemble the website we're supposed to be working with in the slightest.

For a beginner class, I thought there was lots of references to terminology and names of software, etc. that weren't well explained.

Some of the content desperately needs to be updated! In particular, the section on IBM Watson Studio *really* needs to be revisited.

It was very difficult to create account on IBM watson. Most of the critical things were self learn and there was no video for them.

I am sorry to say that I did not find this module of any use. After the new interface of IBM Watson, videos were not helpful at all.

The course need to update its material since there were a lot of complications and confusions with IBM Cloud and IBM Watson Studio.

No real learning involved here. Just a deluge of names thrown at you like someone reading out of the Silicon Valley yellow pages.

I'd rate it 4 or 5 stars if the course was updated so that the screenshots actually matched the content displayed on the websites.

Instructions sometimes do not correspond to the application screens since they have not updated alongside the application updates.

Good Course .. but i think the material has been stretched to such long unnecessarily, had it been short it would be much better.

It was great to work with all the different tools. But it was a little bit difficult to navigate thru the weeks and assignments.

Would be better if the video content (eg tool screenshots) and intructions match the tool that we were practising on, thank you.

The tutor is extremely difficult to understand. He skips certain important aspects. Plus the course is not properly organized.

Nice overview of open source tools available on multiple providers. Lower grades because the IBM Cloud videos are out of date.

The course should have included few case studies and more examples on these tools otherwise nice exposure to open source tools

Some points are not explained in a clear way. The link provided by course is not working. I had to go to IBM website directly.

There are some outdated videos in this course. I think it would be cool if you could to update the videos about Watson Studio.

Very basic and does nothing more than mention the open source software and their features at a very shallow, and basic level.

It was an OK review of the tools but the course definitely needs updating.

The material is not suited for absolute beginners.

It goes very in deep in the tools you can use. But a bit long in my opinion. Wish to have more practical stuff to do soon

Most of the topics are unable to follow. This course doesn't seems to be designed for beginners, It could have be better.

The Waston Studio videos are outdated.

Time consuming to figure it out, esp. when your internet was not that good either..

Great if you have or will have a job at IBM, otherwise not as interesting since you come in contact with many IBM tools.
