Confessions of a Bedroom Programmer

Sitting in the back of my brother’s car clutching my brand new Atari STE I happily declared I was going to be writing my first game soon. The Atari STE came with a selection of games I was keen to play but the image of STOS the Game Creator, a programming package which came with the STE, was the center of my dreams. The thought of being able to create any game I want, limited only by my imagination. Nothing in the world mattered to me at that very moment as I dreamed of hiding away with my copy of

What Are the Programming Languages Required for Data Science?

Since the advancement of Data Science is capturing more popularity. Job opportunities in this field are more. Therefore, in order to gain knowledge and become a professional worker, you need to have a brief idea about at least one of these languages that is required in Data Science. PYTHON Python is a general purpose, multiparadigm and one of the most popular languages. It is simple, easy- to-learn and widely used by the data scientists. Python has a huge number of libraries which is its biggest strength and can help us perform multiple tasks like image processing, web development, data mining,

Programming Languages of Data Science

Data Science is a study of analyzing data in different aspects. In several cases of consideration of data analysis, there is a general abstract framework that describes a basic structure on how data has to be designed. For example, in the generation of music notes, there’s a certain criterion like using only particular music notes for the respective tunes. Describing data analysis is a difficult conundrum. Developing a framework involves considering the elements of the data and implementing it using programming language. Why should we use programming languages for data analysis? As we know, data is used in many streams

How to Structure Your Programming Code

I remember my first fumble with basic on my ZX Spectrum computer back in the 1980s, ploughing through pages of basic commands and example code without any real idea of how I could write programs myself. It was like reading a dictionary where I could learn certain words and their meanings with limited information on how I could construct them into entire sentences to write a document. Every programmer who has dabbled in basic has probably come across the famous “Hello Word” routine which consists of a two-line program that prints this phrase unlimited times on the screen. Your program

R Programming: Data Science

Data science requires mastering in various fields like machine learning, R programming, Python, deep learning and many more. Among all these, one of the basic key programming languages required for every data scientist is R programming. These programming languages helps a data scientist to collect data, create visualization, perform predictive and statistical analysis and to communicate the course of results with stakeholders. Basics of R programming language: It is a programming language developed by Robert Gentleman and Ross Ihaka. It deals with various concepts of graphical and statistical methods. It includes statistical interference, linear regression, and machine learning algorithm, time
