Our team of Azure Cloud Advocates, Program Managers, and Student Ambassadors are pleased to bring a new addition to the 
For Beginners Curriculum series: Data Science for Beginners. Data Science for Beginners is a free, MIT-licensed open-source curriculum of 20 lessons that focus on the foundations of Data Science and requires no prior knowledge to get started.

 

Our curricula are structured with a modified Project-Based pedagogy and include:
  • a pre-lesson warmup quiz
  • a written lesson
  • video
  • knowledge checks
  • a project to build
  • infographics, sketchnotes, and visuals
  • a challenge
  • an assignment
  • a post-lesson quiz
  • opportunities to deepen your knowledge on Microsoft Learn

What will you learn?

To make it easy for new learners to get started, we built the content so that it can be used offline and so that the exercises can be completed using .ipynb notebooks within Visual Studio Code. Grab your datasets and let's go!
 
Data Science for Beginners focuses on foundational concepts and practical applications of Data Science. 

You'll learn how to work with different types of data and using 
Python libraries like Pandas for doing more with your data and how to make sense of it all with visualizations.  

Finally, you'll learn of how data science is applied through the Data Science Lifecyclein the cloud, and real examples.

 

Ready to do data science? Visit the repository!

 

Be sure to visit the other beginner's curricula too!
