Python is a powerful tool to perform data science. From cleaning null values to wrangling data for a detailed analysis to visualising algorithms, this tool is unlike any other. Let’s dive into the world of analysing numbers and writing algorithms with an introduction to data science in Python. Data science was named the sexiest job […]

“Breaking into data science is similar to breaking into, say, software engineering for someone who doesn’t have that kind of background,” says Shweta Bhatt, Data Scientist at Jupiter Money and is a Springboard mentor. Today, there are various opportunities for you to learn data science, but before taking that leap, you must understand what a […]
