Hello Fishes,
I have 10 yrs. Of exp. In IT industry. Working on swift, shell/perl programming with an investment banking firm.
I am looking to upskill and that is why thinking to get a post graduate degree in data science and look for related jobs.
Is there anyone who has similar kind of experience?
Can you suggest which courses are good to enter into data science and what benefit it will bring to me?
Also, is it a wise decision to move into a new area (data science) at this level.of exp?
