Hello everyone! I am currently trying to complete the “Data Scientist: Analytics” careet path. I finished the “Python Fundamentals for Data Science (Part I)” and I am beginning part II. I am wondering if anybody else is feeling a bit overwhelmed with this section. Part I was mostly very straightforward and beginner-friendly but part II starts off talking about scraping websites and APIs. It is all very confusing to me because part I did not go over how to use any packages in Python and the career path has not covered the syntax for making an API request. I am excited to try to learn about data science and analytics but I am now feeling discouraged. Should I be learning other things before I attempt to continue with this career path? I am wondering if I need to take some basic computer science courses or if I should move to taking the stand-alone Python course here to get a better understanding of things? Anytime I see something that tells me to use the “command line” or “terminal” I get scared . If anybody has any suggestions I would really appreciate it.
Im on the same careeer path as you and Im also a complete beginner. I had to take the commandline course (Learn the Command Line) after the Python I and then I started the Git course (Learn Git & GitHub). Im about 65% done with that one and now also trying to start the Python II… So I guess I would recomend those two courses… how ever it didnt help me with this API stuff
It’s good to know I’m not the only one! I guess I will have to take a little journey into some of those other courses you mentioned. I think it was extra frustrating becuase it was smooth sailing and then I had the sudden realization that there was soooo much more to learn. I hope you’re making out ok now! Good luck!
