Rusty and Need Advice

I went through a data science boot came about 3 years ago and have become rusty. I want to get back into it but I’m struggling to find places to grind my skills (how I found this place) and find projects. Any advice on these two things would be great! My new years resolution is to change job fields from a Help Desk tech to something in development or Data oriented with the plan of going down ML and Ai.

It’s really great to hear that you are looking to rekindle your skills in data science after a break!

We do have a tone of resources that can help you achieve this, the most reliable one would be Datacamp, this will be a good place to refresh your knowledge. In addition to this you can also check platforms like Udemy, edX , Kaggle or even YouTube.

When it come to ML and AI you still can use the same platforms as they offer beginner frienldy resources to help you get started, but I would also recommend to begin with freeCodeCamp’s certification of Machine Learning with Python for a better understanding of the concept.

Happy Coding :hearts:.


Adding to @larymak’s advice,

you can start with this basic python certification from freeCodeCamp
in case you don’t remember python or want to ensure you have a good basic foundation before doing the “ml with python certification”

alternatively, there also is which is a fantastic resource which you can use alongside to learn concepts
