    Hey @royshouvik . i have just started with data science course. Anything I should keep in mind while going through the course

    @royshouvik
    @gmunish007 Can't think of anything specific.. Feel free to ask questions if something is not clear

    Hey
    How long will it take to finish the entire course

    Hello, is there any provision for the publication of the curriculum in data science?

    Sorry, I found the course (or curriculum as I said earlier).

    Hey everyone :smile:
    Just want to ask, is there any textbook required to follow this path?
    Shouvik Roy
    @royshouvik
    @wsr13990 the courses should be self sufficient, there are lot of great textbooks available on the internet if you are interested

    @royshouvik We now have a new way to track our progress in the OSSU-CS curriculum. Maybe it would be helpful to do something like this for the DS course as well. In this section you can understand how it will be done now :smile:
    Shouvik Roy
    @royshouvik
    @ericdouglas sweet! Standing on the shoulder of "Trello" giant ;) I will get it going for the DS curriculum as well

    @royshouvik yeah, totally! You know:

    Has anyone completed all the courses as given? If so, how long did take you complete it?
    Also how does this course compare with the data science master course

    Hey guys, I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone involved! Specially @royshouvik for starting this. :+1:
    I've been following the course for the past month + a few weeks, I finished the Linear Algebra section and I'm now working my way through Calculus, I was told these stuff in school and university, but I was never actually taught, now I'm actually learning the concepts in and out.

    @royshouvik
    Good luck :+1: @mdibaiee

    How long does it take to Complete all these courses on average ? Like 1000 hours or what can anyone here give me any idea about this so I plan my Studies accordingly 😐😐
    Mahdi Dibaiee
    @mdibaiee

    @lastnamearya I don't know about the whole path, I started around 3 months ago (20.09.16) and I'm on Calculus B right now, I do it alongside work and university and everything, I think on average I put 2-3 hours a day on it, sometimes more sometimes less.

    what I really like about it is it has become a habit of mine to follow the courses everyday, I estimate I'm going to finish Multivariable Calculus in 2 months with this pace

    Hello everyone, Hows your data science journey going?
    If any of you are struggling with the math prereq (Linear Algebra, Probability) for the data science path, I highly recommend Khan Academy
    Mahdi Dibaiee
    @mdibaiee

    @royshouvik I'm on Calculus 1B: Integration, last chapter, and I'm excited for the next part!

    I was just wondering, I haven't seen much integration in use in data science personally, differentiation, that's a key, but integration? Hardly seen it anywhere.
    How does it apply to data science problems? (I understand that it's very good to know calculus inside out, and it really helped me with my math skills anyways, just asking out of curiosity!)

    @royshouvik Also another question: I'm a programmer for 4 years now and I've worked with numpy, scikit and tensorflow a little before, should I take the python courses?
    Thank you Shouvik! :+1:
    Shouvik Roy
    @royshouvik
    You are right @mdibaiee Integration isn't needed as is in Data Science, it's kind of a basic math prereq (along with other Calculus topics) which would help in any technical field. It might help in visualizing the area under a curve (size of a population, give a bounding curve), what do you think?
    If you are comfortable with numpy and scikit, I guess you can skip learning Python, its totally up to you and you have to take that call based upon how confident you feel, time available etc.. that's true for any topic not just Python
    We should understand that this is just a guiding path, for everyone who is interested in learning about data science and machine learning. Some of us might have proficiency in one topic or the other.. but the guide shouldn't make any assumption about learners background (except maybe, willingness to learn) , so its possible that there are too many topics / courses in the path
    Mahdi Dibaiee
    @mdibaiee
    @royshouvik I think understanding what Integration is and how it works does really help with mathematical thinking overall, and might actually be helpful in some fields, it has many applications in different fields, if not directly used in Data Science, I think it might be helpful in other stuff. I personally enjoyed understanding it :+1:

    @royshouvik
    @mdibaiee exactly
    Mahdi Dibaiee
    @mdibaiee
    @royshouvik I see, that's right and that's what makes me love this path so much! I'm free to learn what interests me and that prevents me from being bored! :D
    Thank you so much for compiling this path! I don't know how I can express my gratefulness :D
    Shouvik Roy
    @royshouvik
    Just by helping fellow people and submitting PRs :)
    Mahdi Dibaiee
    @mdibaiee
    I'm willing to do that, I'll keep an eye for questions and issues :D
    Shouvik Roy
    @royshouvik
    The path belongs to all of us, so feel free to submit a pull request if you would like to change anything about the path.
    Great :+1: we need more people like you :+1: :+1:
    :smiley:
    Mahdi Dibaiee
    @mdibaiee
    @royshouvik sure, I will! It's been good so far, I'll see what I can improve along the path. :D :+1:

    @mdibaiee: Integration is used a lot in probability. And probability is one of the cornerstones of data science.
    Mahdi Dibaiee
    @mdibaiee
    @SassySamurai oh, I'll have to see! I haven't reached probability yet, thanks for mentioning it! :D

    i recently try to open edx course for statistics and it says enrollment is closed
    is there any good alternative for that?

    @SassySamurai
    @wsr13990, try the new one from University of Edinburgh: https://www.edx.org/course/statistics-unlocking-world-data-edinburghx-statsx

    @wsr13990
    @SassySamurai Thanks, gonna check that out

    does anyone know how i can learn R but not download anything and use an online IDE?
