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....

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!!!!

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.

The IBM Data Studio videos are outdated and they don't reflect what you find on IBM Data Studio's new version. Please update the videos.

A bit boring, but necessary. I think there could be more graded exercises instead of ungraded experiments. To make it more challenging.

It was a really great course BUT in the labs the explanations on how to do things were very poor. I had to google a substantial amount

Overall, the course is good. Some of the videos are outdated. It made it difficult to complete the last assignment as well as the lab.

The material is chaotic, it's more tutorial and ad for three presented platforms than an independent course presenting available tools

Instruction Videos are outdated; a totally different format is used for some of the Open Source Tools then what is shown in the video.

We desperately need to update the vids to reflect the current v. of watson. This was tough to figure out without the proper tutorial.

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
