Introduction to Data Science

Hi. I’m Matthew Renze, data science consultant author, and public speaker. Welcome to this introductory course on data for data science. In this course, we’ll learn about data as a foundation for data science. We’ll learn what data is, why it’s important, and how it is used within data science. In addition, we’ll learn about data types, data structures, tabular data, and the data life cycle, all from the perspective of data science. But first, let’s begin with a quick story.
