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.

Absolutely Loved this course!! Challenging at times to keep up with all the terms and processes. The course provided great insight into Data Science. Would highly recommend it as your first course.

Good overview of the tools. But this might be a bit confusing to someone completely new to the tech/data/coding world

Some of the captures used in this course are not the same that applications show you, but it is not too much problem.

Video content is a bit outdated so kindly update it or at least attach reading with it to let the students understand

I like open source tools but the IBM watson studio, being an enterprise tool, does not very much fit into the course.

A good introduction to beginners. More interesting and challenging staff are in the proceeding courses in the series

It is a very basic course, especially it is theoretical (something important to have a good foundation). Good course

Unfortunately some of the videos are very old the videos are not paired with the reality found in Watson Studio. :(

Course was good at introducing software, however, the videos introduce an older version which can make it confusing.

i would give it a 5 but the videos are outdated and do not show the tools for eg Watson in its current updated state

The material is good, but needs to be updated to reflect the changes in the IBM engine used for the lab environment.

The videos are less friendly than the first course, but they are condensed, explicit and quick to put hands to work!

This is a brief introduction, so there is not much detail, however it does provide an awareness of available tools.

course is based on old interface of IBM Watson. this will create confusion for the learner in understanding process

The video should be updated together with the IBM Watson. It is difficult to follow the lesson and do the exercise.

Would be even better if they had updated the content along with the update of the new Watson Studio user Interface.

Great Introduction to the Open Source Data Science Tools. But I would expect the tutorials to be easier to follow.

They need to upload the new videos, because the videos are with the old version which is very difficult to follow.
