Why to learn:

Data science and business intelligence aspects will be covered in details!

This course is designed for both beginners with some programming experience as well as talented fresh graduates and junior professionals with firm tech and math skills looking to make the jump to data-centric fields!

The top programming languages from a career perspective as examined and indicated by several sources include SQL and Python among the first three programing languages. The main structure of this program is built on the hands-on experience that the participants will acquire by using SQL for databases as well as Python for data science purposes and scope.
