Data Science Immersive [Week 1 Review]

Key Thoughts:

First week has been brutal. Aside from having to revisit statistics that I have not touched since university days, I had to contend with a challenging first project that I spent the long weekend on. Yup, bye-bye to social life for now. Just based on the amount of content covered this week, I will have to spend time outside of classroom hours to read up on my own. Bootcamps are not certainly not designed for people who just want to skim and coast through.

Most commonly heard phrases:

ValueError, invalid syntax, list index out of range, IndexError, cannot concatenate ‘str’ and ‘int’ objects… the list goes on!

Key Challenges/ What to improve on:

Understanding and writing list comprehensions

Bayesian statistics (joint probability)

Converting intent to lines of code
