This is a great Medium post on how to go about creating your own data science learning experience, ranking all kinds of online courses.

1. Some of the courses available:




2. Doing data science practice questions

– Udemy course

Analytics Vidhya

Project Euler

3. Flashcards for myself testing basic statistics and other machine learning concepts

4. Set up a Github page with my own code that others can see? Not quite ready for this step yet.
