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!!!!

Very boring course... It was not that deep! It only takes a few hours to complete it! To be honest, I felt like it was a Kindergarten course!!!

This course was just the marketing of IBM tools. I gained nothing expect the link which was in a discussion where I learned some basic python.

Had problems with creating notebook on IBM watson studio and got no expert help. I had to figure it out on my own which took a lot of time.

Videos need to be updated, as the IBM Watson Studio has a new look and differs from he examples in the video. Very confusing to beginners.

The course does not seem to be maintained - a couple of things changed since the last update that make it hard to follow the instructions.

It was nice to get an overview of the tools, but I found the labs very simple. There didn't seem to be any important tasks to complete.

I feel like i didn't learn how to do much here except learn how to read directions and follow along. My googling skills also improved.

Brain Dump of Information, some videos did not sync properly and it was difficult to understand (not because of professors, but audio)

Felt like an advertisement for IBM products. Not much to learning in this course. Some videos were just plain reading text from web.

Contents are nice but had a nightmare accessing Lite version of IBM Watson. Did not have option to create assignment without Watson.

Pretty boring Course.

Doesnt feel I got much out of it except the knowing of the IBM Wasson platform.

Hope next ones will be better!

This course is slightly more helpful than the first course, but it is still not clear to me why this needs to be a separate course.

Outdated tutorials and expects too much knowledge. Talks about concepts like Apache Spark, RDDs, and tuples with no introduction.

Don't be fooled this is one big marketing demo. I wish they would just pick a language and jump into cleaning and analyzing data.

I found it to be a bit waste of time. This course was more expositive than explicative and the quizzes only evaluate your memory.

The instructor seemed to be using a different (most likely the paid) version of Watson. This made it hard to follow the lessons.

Instructions are not clear and software on which tutor teach is look-alike old which caused me issues to understand what to do.

There seems to be a disconnect between almost everything. Tutorials, lectures, labs. Only a few were helpful but ultra basic.

Sites look different now and the video lectures described an older version I think. Also lectures weren't much understanding.

The course needs a revision regarding watson studio. Spend a lot of time getting it work, because video's aren't up to date.

The videos are not up to date with the latest Watson Studio.

I have lost a lot of time to configure Watson Studio correctly.

Not very well structured, sometimes outdated, sometimes with questions where the answer are only given at a later stage.

H​alf of the course was advertisement for IBM Products. I am taking this course to become independent of such products.

Really enjoyed the course. Only complaint was that videos are slightly outdated so had to go find up to date tutorials.
