I have 12+ experience in Java enterprise programming and a beginner in Big data analytics.
Currently started learning Python and going through blogs related to analytics, statistics, modelling etc.
I have a mac book which based on my analysis so far is not best suitable for running machine learning or data intensive algorithms using Python.
I dont want to spend too much of money for buying expensive machines with GPUs before i get hands on with the technologies.
I am thinking of subscribing to any of online cloud services like AWS, Azure or Google cloud.
However would like to check which would be a suitable bet for a beginner who likes to run some samples and test algorithms with lots of sample data set and sample packages or projects which i can download online?
Would like to check which one gives more
i) packages and suits to learn
ii) cost effective
iii) Relatively simple learning curve
iv) Potential to rule the market in future for analytics.
Would be greatful if i can get any suggestions or any blogs written on this topic already.
Sorry this is my first post in this community and not sure this is already discussed before.
Thank you in advance.
