Master Exploratory Data Analysis in Weekend

About the Book

About In-weekend Series?

As I have a regular job, I have to go to company and work on solving problem 5 Days in a Week, and as I should increase my knowledge to have a life progress, I need to study and learn more and more, but when I arrive to home everyday, I look like a disaster and I can’t even open my eyes, so the only time I have to study are in the holiday/weekends. In those two days I have to study and have time with my family. So, I got the idea of effectively time management, to manage and keep use of every minute of those two days, in both studying and having family time. So, every week at work I take 10 minute to design and build what I should learn and study on the weekend, and when the weekend comes I start finishing what I have built. And from this the idea came to me to build a series to help you to progress your skill while you have no time to do that.
