Data Science Boot camp is a comprehensive set of challenging projects carefully designed to grow your data science skills from novice to master. Veteran data scientist Leonard Apeltsin sets 10 increasingly difficult exercises that test your abilities against the kind of problems youâ€™d encounter in the realworld. As you solve each challenge, youâ€™ll acquire and expand the data science and Python skills youâ€™ll use as a professional data scientist. Ranging from text processing to machine learning, each project comes complete with a unique downloadable data set and a fullyexplained stepbystep solution. Because these projects come from Dr. Apelstinâ€™s vast experience, each solution highlights the most likely failure points along with practical advice for getting past unexpected pitfalls. When you wrap up these 10 awesome exercises, youâ€™ll have a diverse relevant skill set thatâ€™s transferable to working in industry.
