Hi fishes,
I need your suggestion.
I am currently working as a data analyst with 3 years of experience and now I'm planning to take my career in data science. Can you suggest how can I do so? My current company is not having me data science roles and I need to learn it before I can go for interview. Can you all tell me how do I start?

And I would suggest you go through statistics, and business problem solving first. Translating a solution code wise will be easy (how to do) but knowing what to do, why to do and when to do, is crucial, is what I feel.

This is what I'm planning to do slowly ( I don't really have the resources for it yet ) , but I'm open to suggestions from experienced DS's as well

Data Science is just a big bubble and it has started busting. Better choose any one technology or any cloud and master it. If you know the technology you can fit yourself into any role. It's just my suggestion.

I partially agree. Data Science is a bubble for the freshers who are trying to look a job directly in data scientist role. My opinion is ,for a data analyst who has been working with data for 3 years, once he learns statistics and intermediate to advance python including its libraries have better chance than a fresher who is looking out for a data scientist job.

My suggestion Freshers should completely stay away its a bubble, which is already bursted and there are no much openings for 1-2 years exp too. Technical interviews are too difficult to crack for experienced people too.

PS: I am a self learned Data Scientist now and have transitioned from data analyst 2yrs exp.

That this level of mediocrity passes for talent explains why so many agency briefs are so lame.
