I get it; you’re busy. Even if you had the time to read every tutorial and watch every video available, you probably missed something. Data is a vast subject. As this year winds down, I thought it might be a good idea to bring your attention to the content you might have missed. I’ve divided data into two main topics, data management, and data analytics. Hopefully, this makes it easier for you to find what pertains to you.
If you’re into the database, connecting to data, storing data and more, this is the post for you. If you’re into machine learning, data science, and analytics, check out the data analytics post.
