Ihe Onwuka commented on Vincent Granville's blog post Vertical vs. Horizontal Data Scientists
"The example below illustrates this article and it's arguments are just plain wrong.  The person asking for assistance here is  the  inventor of XBRL and a CPA - no shortage of business knowledge there. The technology he is trying…"

Ihe Onwuka commented on Vincent Granville's blog post Big Data: The Key Vocabulary Everyone Should Understand
"What  about Hype  A fad. A clever marketing strategy which a product is advertized as the thing everyone must have, to the point where people begin to feel they need to consume it. Source…"

Ihe Onwuka commented on ajit jaokar's blog post Programming for Data Science the Polyglot approach: Python + R + SQL
"@Jitin The issues you raise are a great opportunity for critical thought. If there is no fixed paradigm for data science how does it make sense to fix the programming languages to be used for it. First of all before we dismiss them as irrelevant to…"

"Meanwhile "If you go to Silicon Valley and talk to any of the startups they are all using Scala nobody even questions it any more". - Dean Wampler http://www.slideshare.net/deanwampler/why-scala-is-taking-over-the-big-data-world or for the…"

Ihe Onwuka commented on ajit jaokar's blog post Programming for Data Science the Polyglot approach: Python + R + SQL
"@Ajit Your intention seems to be to mediocritize data science programming. The person who works with say  Julia, Mathematica , Scala and Xquery is probably by some distance the superior programmer. What is supposed to happen to them?"

"Sorry I omitted the link to the Wampler talk. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQE1B_76Slg and in the first sentence Data Science = Python v R shoud read Data Science = Python and R."

Ihe Onwuka commented on ajit jaokar's blog post Programming for Data Science the Polyglot approach: Python + R + SQL
"@Ajit Data Science = Python v R is the very embodiment of mistaking the part for the whole - per John Mark Agosta's earlier post - data science is not  statistical data programming. Note that I specifically mentioned the context of the…"

"It's a ridiculous article about a ridiculous (but sadly popular) idea. Consider " From a pedagogical standpoint, this approach is similar to David Asubel who stressed the importance of prior knowledge in being able to learn…"

Ihe Onwuka commented on Vincent Granville's blog post Six categories of Data Scientists
"There is a snag with the reasoning in the last paragraph and I can only speak to data engineering, software engineering and machine learning because that is my background.  People who are genuinely good in these areas are actually quite rare.…"

Ihe Onwuka commented on Vincent Granville's blog post Unicorn Data Scientist Shares his Secrets with You
"It is really quite silly to insist on Python on a data science resume. Firstly the advocates of the language claim it is easy to learn. Secondly there are certain programming languages knowledge of which tends to delineate superior programming…"
