I wanted to create a quick blog post which will be a redux of a blog post I did two years ago. This is for people who are like me, people who want to practice their data science skills but are too broke to shell out $16,000 bones for a data science bootcamp. Luckily some of these bootcamps post all of their resources on github.
The Data Science Summer School(D3) is a bootcamp hosted by Microsoft and is geared towards undergraduates in the New York area. Microsoft also has a dataset resources to practice your machine learning algorithms.
CS 109- Harvard Intro to Data Science even though this is a bootcamp this class has the most comprehensive materials on this list. It has lecture notes, videos , and assignments. Harvard education without the price or the accreditation.
Kevin Markham also has his own youtube channel where he teaches scikit learn.
Other resources that are not in bootcamp/ structured class format
The most important resource in this list is Hardley Wickham’s tidy data tutorial . As a statistics major in undergrad I was blessed/cursed with never having to deal with messy data until I went to grad school. Its something that we all need to learn.
