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.

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 Lower grades because the IBM Cloud videos are out of date.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There are some outdated videos in this course.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.

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The Waston Studio videos are outdated.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.

The Github modules were rushed and not beginner friendly. Everything else was good though. Great quizzes and assessment

The data science experience page demonstrated in the video does not match the actual interface. It was quite confusing.

IBM Watson Studio was pretty confusing and it wasted a lot of time. please improve it. Overall satisfactory experience

Videos are not upto date so for practice session there was lot of time wasted in just navigating to the right content

Easy. You should include more exercises for each too and get students to do some small but real project on each tool.

This REALLY needs to be updated for IBM Watson studio, the tools are completely different than what are in the video

Very basic. The IBM cloud advertisements make it feel more like a product endorsement than a real course, at times.

Assignments can be improved, they're parallel with course goal but learning about specific tools is a bit boring.

This course shows so many tools, but at the same time, you learn nothing. It so much content, but so little depth

The course could have been better if the presenter could have been in sync with the latest versions of software.

The old videos do not preset properly the steps one needs to take to create and configure the account in Watson.

It is really focussed on IBM specific cloud tools. I would have liked at least one alternative as a praxis lab.

Please update the videos to reflect the updated IBM Watson studio's new look.

Besides that, the course is solid!

Good info, but the videos are out of date. If not for actually learning, I wouldn't recommend as a paid course.

Sometimes not consistent. Lectures on Git were terrible.

I liked introductions to Jupyter, R and Watson Studio.

The section on IBM Watson was very poor - the desciption in course was misleading and nothing like actual tool
