Hadoop is an open-source framework that stores and process big data in a distributed environment using simple programming models. It is designed to scale up from single servers to thousands of machines, while each offers local computation and storage. Hadoop divides a file into blocks and stores across a cluster of machines. It achieves fault tolerance by replicating the blocks on a cluster.
Hadoop can be used as a flexible and easy way for the distributed processing of large…Continue

With the introduction of big data, the need for its storage increased gradually. Companies were focussing on building solutions and frameworks to store as much data as possible. When this problem is addressed by big names such as Hadoop, companies shifted their focus on data processing. Here, the popular term that everyone might have heard once is “data science.” Undoubtedly, data science is considered as the future of AI…Continue

After spending numerous evenings and weekends learning and coding for more than a year, you finally did it! You’ve now completed your data science program, earned your shiny certificate...now what? Chances are you were looking to get a job in data when you signed up for the course. So let’s face this, it is time to get a job! The only thing that’s standing…Continue
The following advice is built from my experience working as a data scientist on a variety of projects across different data & engineering teams. Many data scientists (myself included) do not come from a computer science or software development background, so may not have formal training or good habits in code writing. These tips should help data scientists work collaboratively to write good code and build models in a way that will be easier to…Continue

According to IBM, the world generates 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day. A decent chunk of those quintillion bytes is made up of people asking the experts how to break into and excel in the dynamic, lucrative field of data science. An even larger chunk of those bytes consists of convoluted, contradicting answers to that question.
This is, on one hand, a great thing. Multiple prominent data science innovators are out there giving you free advice on your most pressing questions,…Continue
The rise of the data scientists continues and the social media is filled with success stories – but what about those who fail? There are no cover articles praising the fails of the many data scientists that don’t live up to the hype and don’t meet the needs of their stakeholders.
The job of the data scientist is solving problems. And some data scientists can’t solve them. They either don’t know how to, or are obsessed about the technology part of the craft and forget what the job is…Continue
“What if we add these variables?..” is a deadly type of a question that can ruin your analytic project. Now, while curiosity is the best friend of a data scientist, there’s a curse that comes with it – some call it analysis paralysis, others – just over-analysis, but I call these situations “analytic rabbit holes”. As you start any data science project – be it an in-depth statistical research, machine learning model, or a simple business analysis – there…Continue

A data scientist is an umbrella term that describes people whose main responsibility is leveraging data to help other people (or machines) making more informed decisions. The spectrum of data scientist roles is so broad that I will keep this discussion for my next post. What I really want to focus is on what are the distinctive characteristics of a great data scientist.
Over the years that I have worked with data and analytics I have found that this has almost nothing to do with…Continue
