Very useful tips for the data scientists.
Be flexible and adaptable – There is no single tool or technique that always works best. Cleaning data is most of the work – Knowing where to find the right data, how to access the data, and how to properly format/standardize the data is a huge task. It usually takes more time than the actual analysis. Not all building models – Like the previous tip, you must have skills beyond just model building. Know the fundamentals of structuring data – Gain an understanding of relational databases. Also learn how to collect and store good data. Not all data is useful. Document what you do – This is important for others and your future self. Here is a subtip, learn version control.
