Not quite sure where to begin?

Hi! I just signed up for Code Academy a few days ago and am planning to start on Monday. For the past three years, I have been working as a Fraud Analyst for a startup. We do not current use any form of data analytics and I am very aware of the fact that this is the direction the industry is headed because any other similar position I look into requires a programming language. I’m a beginner starting from scratch.
-Currently enrolled in the Data Science foundations with the intention of moving into data scientist: analytics specialist. Is there something more fundamental that I am missing? Please help :slight_smile:
