@Uchenry can you give more information on what you need datetime to do in pandas? I'm not sure how to answer your question.

Thanks Eric for asking, it has been sorted...
However, the date in the dataset I was given was an Object...
I was required to convert it to datetime64[ns]
so, I found a function that helped me do that.

greetings freeCodeCamp DataScience
is there a chance for Data Science to show up in freeCodeCamp curriculum? I read many articles about Data Science and i find it difficult for myself to even understand what it is

@psyperl While that's not the main focus of the channel, and a DS curriculum is still not available, there are a bunch of us here who are more than happy to help if you have basic question, else you can try searching through the FreeCodeCamp forum's data science posts
@psyperl Also, a kind of naive explanation of data science is computer augmented statistical analyses.
@OudarjyaS_twitter Honestly it depends on what you want to show off with your portfolio. "Data Science" is a broad topic and since some amount of domain expertise is a requirement at all levels, in theory all of them could be of use to you...
Without knowing anything more than what I see in that picture, I'd start but looking at what "computer" has to offer, personally.

ok cool, so basically it derives from statistical analysis. thanks @becausealice2 . and will there be a relation between Data Science and Data Mining?

@mstellaluna you are consonant .. got it :D
I will try following freeCodeCamp forum DS posts .. there seems to have people ask basic questions and answers already.. hope to see some clear pointer there

Think of it like geology. Can't study the rocks you don't have.
