Also, not surprisingly, we teach R programming in our Bootcamp for all the reasons I mention above. However, per our mission of 8775 data science for everyone 8776 , most of our students do not have extensive programming backgrounds. Even with our students that code, R skills are quite rare. Fortunately, our students universally share skills in using Microsoft Excel for various analytical scenarios. It is my belief that Excel skills are an excellent foundation for learning R. Some example of this include:
One benefit of competing in Kaggle competitions (which I heartily recommend doing) is that as a competitor you get exposure to cutting-edge machine learning algorithms, techniques, and libraries that you might not necessarily hear about through other avenues. One such example of 8775 new hotness 8776 is the xgboost library. While I won 8767 t go into exhaustive detail into xgboost here, I will summarize that xgboost provides an implementation of gradient boosting that provides three advantages over alternatives like R 8767 s gbm package and Python 8767 s GradientBoostingClassifier :
WordPress is constantly improving and being updated as well. It 8767 s open-source design allows anyone to tweak the program and add new functionality as they see fit.
Penzu is focused on the original purpose of blogs as online journals. This platform takes that approach as its main focus with great results. You can sign up for free and choose from different types of journals.
By default, the journal entries you have are private, but you can choose to make public. You 8767 ll have options for your cover, background, and font to make the journal unique to you and your personality.
I have a hypothesis that our experiences teaching Data Science around the world are indicative of the market at large. That is, there are many, many Business Analysts, Data Analysts, Product Managers, etc. looking to expand their analytical skills beyond Excel, but do not have extensive programming backgrounds.
The Genesis Extender Plugin is by Cobalt Apps. You can design any Theme with the Dynamik Website Builder if you don 8767 t have a Genesis Child Theme.
HostGator :HostGator is another shared hosting solution that I recommend. They have the shortest wait times for customer support of any web-hosting provider that I have ever used. I highly recommend checking out HostGator. If you are looking for cost effective website hosting, you need not go beyond HostGator. This is one of the best hosting companies around and I have tried nearly all of the big players. The advantage of using this service is that they offer hosting which can be scaled up with minimal effort when required. Blog Basics was hosted with HostGator for several years.
Can you please confirm that it will allow me to get all the new templates that have come out since I last updated? I didn't realize that the updates were new templates, and never updated after the initial download a year ago.
I 8767 m putting the best foot forward here and starting with the great WordPress. This platform is easily the most popular choices for bloggers and web designers of all kinds.
Wouldn't occam's razor say to just do this until you need something more complex? It's a bit of a hack, but may suit the needs of someone that wants a quick fix.
Not surprisingly, I am often asked by students of our Bootcamp , folks that I mentor on Data Science, and my LinkedIn contacts about the subject of Text Analytics. The good news is that there are many great resources for the R programmer to learn Text Analytics. What follows is a practical curriculum where the only required knowledge is basic R programming skills. I have read all of the books referenced below and can attest that studying the curriculum will have you mastering Text Analytics in no time!
Or are you saying that the framework is not a theme itself but rather the toolbox that a theme designer uses to create a parent theme? And the average user like me then installs and perhaps modifies the parent theme? Is there any reason I need to be concerned with frameworks if I 8767 m not a designer?
