WHY LEARN DATA SCIENCE?
Ever encountered a situation where you were shopping online and bumped into advertisements that were surprisingly related to your searches on Facebook or other platforms continuously for about a week? How about when you were just casually sending a text to your friend and you were suggested by the keyboard to use these same precise words that you were planning to put inside the text you were going to send. Let’s also not forget how Youtube is able to display videos with similar content to what you’ve always watched on the recommendations section or home screen.
Data Science is the answer to all these strange incidents and it has been a successful aspect of many businesses. Over the years, it has been putting in significant value into a lot of business models through data and comprehensive learning to have better decision-making and improve hiring. Data Science also processes historical data and anticipates potentially harmful incidents or any possible risk to make sure that businesses can avoid them.
As stated by the IMDA, Singapore has been seeing an increasing need for skilled programmers in the tech industry and will be lacking about 30,000 technology experts by 2020.

The instructors are highly knowledgeable to be able to bring across new concepts as well as to explain the practicality of the concepts in the workforce! The atmosphere was also very conducive with meals and drinks being offered. Their follow-up service is also impeccable as they continue to update previous classes regarding new happenings in the data science field. Overall, it was a blast and I'm glad to have signed up for it!
The environment was really conducive for learning: spacious, with all the necessary amenities. Besides that, the instructor was very passionate, and was well-prepared for class with in-class worksheets to guide. During the lesson there were also teaching assistants who went around the room to provide guidance when help was needed. The TAs contactable via telegram chat should you require any assistance with your homework.

What is Data Science?
A data scientist typically carries out research and analyses the data to aid companies in improving their business by anticipating the trends, growth and insights built on large sums of data.
Why take up Data Science?
On Glassdoor’s website, Data Science was chosen as the #1 job in 2016 and the need for Big Data jobs will continue to increase in time to come.
What is the Expected Salary of a Data Scientist?
The salary for a data scientist will typically be about $104,000 every year once they have reached the mid-career stage.
My organisation has run into data science issues, what can I do about it?
If you are encountering issues with tabulating huge sums of data, you should take up data science as the skills obtained will let you transform that data into useful insights. On the other hand, if you are to run into any difficult problems that are rather hard to resolve, you can always seek help from our accomplished instructors who can find the solution to your troubles while being a consultant at the same time.
The demand for data scientists will not see an end to it as technology begins to develop even further. Many learners across all ages learn data science in Singapore to broaden their horizons in the competitive Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) industry.
Data science adds value to the business by allowing organizations unpack the findings from data, followed by carefully analyzing these data to gather useful insights to help make strategic business decisions. Big companies like Netflix have been using data science to gather data about users' movie and film viewing patterns to understand what users enjoy and are interested in, to come up with ideas on the next Netflix Original Series to produce for these users.>
With the increase in demand for this profession, there has been a surge of big data analytics courses and data science programs to help aspiring programmers achieve their dreams. Big data cannot simply be uncovered or analyzed using traditional data-processing application software as they are far too complex or large to deal with. Through our courses, students will be able to see the opportunity behind mastering big data and make full use of the acquired data to discover business opportunities and give themselves the edge over others.
Whether it is data science training or big data training, at Hackwagon, we offer the best data science courses to interested applicants. We have made it possible by providing flexibility in our schedules for interested parties through the availability of part-time and full-time courses.
Our big data courses will be taken over the course of 7 weeks, with each lesson lasting up to 3 hours long. The python courses here are highly interactive and gives students the opportunity to acquire hands-on experience by taking part in industry-related projects through many globally known brands like Youtube, Lazada and Airbnb.
Students will be able to learn python programming in advanced business analytics courses to hone their knowledge of programming and apply it to real data when they go into the ICT industry. The job opportunities available for graduates are not just limited to the ICT industry as students are able to venture into various industries such as Retail, Travel & Hospitality and Healthcare to showcase their ability as a programmer after completing the course. With each course completion, a student will be awarded a data analytics certification to recognize them as a qualified programmer.
With the right data analytics training, students will be able to go out into the workforce as an equipped programmer and provide the business with what they need to succeed. Learn python for data science today over a short period and sharpen your ability as a successful programmer in the future.
