Career Shift from Mainframe

career

#1

Hi Team,

I am planning to shift my career from Mainframe to Analytics. My aim is to become either a Data Scientist.

I have gone across various articles in this site, but still confused what all courses needs to be taken to become a Data Scientist. It would be great if i can get guidance on the courses and best institutes to pursue my path.

Thanks in advance.

Hii Sunil,
Even I am from Mainframes background looking for a career in data science.
You must be overwhelmed the number of courses available online. These are the best ones to pursue
1)The Analytics Edge from EDX
2)Statistical Learning from Stanford.
3) Introduction to Machine Learning, Introduction to Descriptive Statistics,Introduction to Inferential Statistics, from Udacity for basic understanding
