I just revealed the data science project that helped my small business generate $3,500,000 in revenue in the last 2 years.

Here are the juicy details...

#datascience #python #rstats #career Image
It's true. My company did almost $2,000,000 last year with an email list size of under 100,000.

And a big part of it was the Marketing Analytics that I'm revealing in my new Python course.

What did we do?
We used machine learning to score leads.

We then created nature vs sales targeting segments.

Then we did this...

As a data scientist, productivity is a 10X super power.

Here's a short list of AI tools to help data scientists with: 🧵

1. Writing code

AI pair programming is a huge benefit.

Tools like #chatgpt & github #copilot can help debug complex code and replace Googling + Stack Overflowing for common scripting.

Key skill: ChatGPT prompting (more on this in my free ChatGPT for Data Scientists) Image
2. Code Quality & Documentation

Great products have great documentation. AI can help produce documentation, comment code, and replace time-consuming manual documentation with automated AI docs.

Over the past 3 years, I've been writing Python code daily.

And this coming Thursday, I'm excited to share what I've learned. 🧵

Most of you know me as an #R guy. And I 1000% love R. ❤️

But I've also grown over the past 10+ years that I've been practicing data science as a data scientist, as a consultant, and as an educator.
What I've come to realize is that no one language is perfect.

Each has its strengths. And weaknesses.

And more often than not we get caught up in debating things that **don't** really matter...

Like R vs Python.

87% of data science projects fail.

One reason is the lack of production.

Here's an easy solution. 🧵

#datascience #python #R #rstats #career Image
This is called an #API (Application Programming Interface). Image
An API allows the user to make requests using a tool they are comfortable with.

The API runs a program that the data scientist has created on the server.

And the API returns a result.

#AI isn't going to take your data science job.

But the #recession might.

Here's how this trend is unfolding from Big #Tech to the broader job market (and how to prepare)...

#datascience #career Image
For the better part of a decade, Big #Tech was on a hiring spree.

Companies like #Amazon, #Microsoft, and #Meta overhired. And that's OK when things are going well.

But then 2022 hit and Big Tech had its worst decline since 2008.
And in January 2023, with CEOs seeking to protect their stock prices, companies like:

PayPal, and

...all announced deep cuts to employees.

There's a reason that companies are "restructuring" #datascience teams.

And, it's actually an opportunity to make 17% more.

Let me explain.

#datascience #rstats #career Image
Companies are getting frustrated.

In 2020-22 they hired 10+ person data science teams with the **hope** that they would bring:

1. Increased productivity
2. predictive analytics,
3. improved customer experience
4. And more revenue + profit
But instead what they got was:

1. 15 Months for project schedules
2. 87% of projects fail
3. $1,000,000+ cost for a data science team

After 12 weeks of using #chatgpt for #datascience, I've learned one thing:

Prompts are ABSOLUTELY critical.

This is why. 🧵

4 weeks ago I made a full chatgpt for data scientists workshop where I showed...

...the MASSIVE amount of debugging I had to do to get ChatGPT to make a data science analysis "work".
Sure, chatgpt still saved me time.

But I was frustrated.

And, debugging was killing me. 😡

A friend rang me after applying for 40+ jobs in 2 months with 0 contacts and 0 interviews

I got him 4 recruiter contacts, 3 interviews and 1 officer in 2 weeks

Here's what we tweaked:

He initially told me he was job hunting and would prefer to apply online

After reading his profile, I tried to discourage him, but he insisted on online applications.

I agreed but on a condition
I told him:

"If you don't get a job in 60 days, we will do it my way"

He agreed.

Every data scientist I know lacks some skills (me included).

But, a change in your focus can take you from no job to $145K+.

Let me explain.

#datascience #career Image
The learning path for a data scientist is full of traps.

It goes something like this:
- Python (or R)
- Algorithms
- Math
- Stats
- Make a Portfolio
- Get some projects under your belt
- More math
- Neural networks
- Deep learning part 2
- More projects (now with cats & dogs)
...And it's a mess.

No wonder why you are struggling.

And it turns out that in this economy, it's even become a lot harder with the "traditional" approach.

The time of bloated data science teams has come to an end.

And, there is a massive shift that's going on right now... 🧵

#datascience #career Image
Bulky data science teams are getting "restructured" as businesses demand more value from their investments.

They don't want 10+ number crunchers.

Especially if it takes 15 months to **maybe** get a project into production.
What they want is business value-

Results that drive revenue & growth.

And starting the year $1M+ in the hole with a bulky data science team isn't the answer.

In their place, a new breed of data scientist is forming.

1/ Thread (8) Young Lawyers who want to learn Criminal Law without help of any guide or mentor, may consider following points.
1) Criminal law is a "Tacit Knowledge" (Knowledge that is learned by doing a task. Just like learning to ride on a bicycle. Here the whole body learns the skill when a job is actually being done.)
2) To learn from a case, you must have access to some actual record of a criminal case.

The best starting point for you as a #software engineer to advance your #career is by asking yourself this.

Do you create drag or lift within your team?

Drag and lift are terms that come from aerospace that apply perfectly to #development teams.

Let’s look at how they are used:
Drag is when you cause friction and slow down processes. One example of drag is showing up to a meeting 5 minutes late and having to have the product owner restart the presentation.
