Who are the Datascience Professionals? India vs US | Men vs Women


This is an analysis of the Kaggle 2018 survey dataset. In my analysis I am trying to understand the similarities and differences between men and women users from US and India, since these are the two biggest segments of the respondent population. The number of respondents who chose something other than Male/Female is quite low, so I excluded that subset as well.

The complete code is available as a …

Is It Too Late For Me To Learn Coding?

The short answer is: "No."

Source: LEGO

I started teaching myself programming in my 40s, and I am a strong advocate that everyone should learn to code. Even if you have no intent to become a developer or a full-stack data scientist, coding teaches you a couple valuable lessons:

  • It disciplines you to…

The Ultimate R Cheatsheet

The Ultimate R Cheatsheet

We are developing a revolutionary new system for teaching Business Analysis with R (Business Analysis with R is a new course we are developing at Business Science University). The system is revolutionary for a number of reasons (we’ll get to these in a minute). The cornerstone of our teaching process is the Data Science with R Workflow that was originally taught by Hadley Wickham and Garrett Grolemund in the excellent…

Opinion: Is a PhD helpful for a data science career?

The answer to this question is not black and white, and also depends on where you live, what you did during your PhD program, how much time and money you spent on it, what kind of jobs you are interested in, and what other experience you have. You could say the same thing about earning an MBA instead.

If your PhD took place abroad as in my case, you may have not spent much money to earn it (you might even have been well paid.) Depending on your school, it might have been…

If data science is in demand, why is it so hard to get a job?

Another question recently posted on social networks. Below is my answer, with link to the original post. 

The main reason is the exponential growth of data science candidates, while the growth in job openings, even though exponential as well, is increasing at a lower pace than the number of applicants. In some ways, this is similar to the explosion of PhD people, while the number of jobs for these people is shrinking. One would wonder: why so many people want to get a PhD…

The Power of Reframing and the Economics of Starting Pitching

I’m a big fan of Woody Allen’s earlier movies such as “Bananas”, “Sleeper” and especially the award winning “Annie Hall.”  One of the things that always impressed me about Woody Allen was his ability to reframe the conversation in a way that was both provocative and creative. For example in the movie “Annie Hall”, there is a scene where Annie Hall (played by Diane Keaton) and Alvy Singer (played by Woody Allen) are sitting with their respective psychoanalysts when they are both asked…
