If you want to learn data science in 2022 and are looking for the best resources such as tutorials, online courses, and websites, then you have come to the right place.

Data Scientists are in high demand.

Data scientists create algorithms designed to learn patterns and correlations from data, which AI can use to create predictive models that generate insight from data. Additionally, they can also utilize AI as a tool to understand data and inform enterprise-level business decision-making.

According to the latest, IT Skills Report by DevSkiller, in 2022 alone there is a 295% increase in the number of data science-related tasks recruiters were desiring for candidates in the interview process. This, in turn, fuelled the growth of Python, a programming language popular within data science and machine-learning applications, demand for which grew by 154%. 

Clearly, the demand for data science is growing fast, yet recruiters are struggling to find data scientists that can help them move their digital ambitions forward. Therefore, making the field a great choice for job availability and security in 2022 and beyond. 

Data science resources beyond the classroom. 

Data scientists have experience in many industries such as computer science, programming languages like Python and R, as well as statistics, and mathematics. Trained data scientists have the ability to o analyze data by extracting valuable insights from it. These insights can help individuals or businesses make better decisions and automate actions. If you are new to data science and are looking for resources, we have compiled a list of the best places to start or continue your learning journey.
