Why R

R is the language of choice for statistical analysis, which is a very important feature in Data Science. R’s popularity comes from the fact that most statistical methods developed in research environments lead to production of ready to use freely available R-packages. R’s popularity has led Microsoft to develop Microsoft R Open: The Enhanced R, Distribution and Oracle to develop Oracle R Enterprise. From our partner companies we have learned that along with Python, R remains the language of choice for data scientists in insurance and pharmaceutical sectors.

Why Python

Python is currently among the fastest growing programming languages in the world. Largely because it is easy to learn, the recent explosion of the Data Science field, and the rise of machine learning in the enterprise. It has high scalability and emphasizes productivity and readability. Python is like a Swiss army knife to data scientists when they want to delve into data analysis or apply machine learning techniques. Python also supports object-oriented and functional programming styles which facilitates building automated tasks and deployable systems. There are plenty of Python scientific packages for data visualization, machine learning, natural language processing, complex data analysis, and more.

What you'll learn

We’ve carefully designed our curriculum to contain the most up-to-date tools demanded by the job market. This is what makes our Data Science Bootcamp so innovative and what will enable you to take the next step in your career.
