New to Data Science

Get started on the path toward becoming a data science practitioner.

A data scientist, as defined by Cloudera's Director of Data Science Josh Wills, is a "peculiar blend of developer and statistician that is capable of turning data into awesome." There are other definitions as well, but the common denominators are great curiousity and a love of data.

As the Hadoop stack becomes the de fact platform for management of Big Data, people with data science skills will be in very high demand. Even CNN calls data science one of the "best new jobs in America."
