About this course

What are the popular tools that data scientists use and need to know? In this course, you'll learn about Jupyter Notebooks with JupyterLab, Apache Zeppelin, and RStudio IDE. Across these three tools, you'll be able to use a variety of programming languages, including Python, R, Scala, and SQL. This is not a programming-oriented course. If you're an aspiring data scientist, or a data science manager looking to learn about what these tools are, and if you want to understand the gist of how these tools work, then this is the course for you! You will not be expected to know statistics, machine learning, and this course is beginner-friendly to new coders. Happy learning!
