Why is it so hard to find effective data science courses? For instance, courses that cover the practical work involved in going from problem to solution?
This is a question I was asked last week. To answer it, we can employ basic mathematics.
Draw a Venn diagram. Include the following sets.
- people who are good at statistics
- people who are good at coding
- people who have good social skills
- people who have good teaching skills
- people who have good technical writing skills
- people who couldn’t be making a shitload more money doing something else
Count the number of people in the intersection of those sets. That’s why.
