The intent of this session is to give you the background knowledge necessary to kick start your exploration of Data Science. This will be an introduction of tools and processes from back to front.
We'll take a look at data formats, tools for extract, transform and load (ETL) and do a quick overview of NoSQL databases. Then we'll cover languages and libraries for working with data. From there we'll look at techniques and approaches for exploring the data and extracting some value from it and how to present it. Finally, you'll get some pointers to online education, contests and communities to further your learning.
