Watch the Strata Livestream and Videos

The Livestream is available at the Strata website. Keynotes and interviews will be happening most of the day Thursday.

If you would like to watch some of the videos and keynotes from today, you can view many of them on the Strata Youtube Channel.

Here is a video to get you started. It is an introduction to Gooru, a search engine for learning.

New Project: Data Science 201

In case you missed my slides I posted this weekend, the end of the presentation mentions a new project I am starting to create. It is called Data Science 201. The goal is simple:

To be the best place on the web for learning about all topics in data science

Blogging is great, but there is more data science resources on the internet than I could ever read/evaluate and blog about. That is why I am creating Data Science 201.

Don’t worry, I will keep this blog going.

Learn Data Science

Starting Point

If you have the necessary background in math, statistics, and computer science; then it is a good time to learn some data science specific skills. Coursera just recently launched a course specifically devoted to Data Science. It is titled: Introduction to Data Science. The course is being taught by Bill Howe of the University of Washington’s eScience Institute. I believe this course is an excellent place to start. I am very excited about this course.

Other Data Science Learning Resources

Here is a listing of other materials that could be helpful to learning data science.
