Python all day long


You could really google the answer to that question. Doing so will help you develop an essential data science skill

Start with SQL. To do the data analytics, one must query the data. SQL basics are hella easy though, so learn Python at the same time to start understanding where limitations are with SQL and where Python works better.


Are there any courses you can recommend? Thanks

I’m also interested in learning!

Advanced Excel and power queries, first. Then languages and interfaces like Tableau

I started with SQL on codeacademy, python is my next to do. There is a ton of resources, for orientation kdnuggets.com is very helpful

SQL for querying data (requesting data that meets a criteria) and Python for scripting (how to process inputs and respond with outputs). Those are two solid foundations upon which you can build from
