Hello, just wanted to introduce myself. I suppose I will be posting here soon because I'm taking an online course in data science on Udemy. Just learning the basics of python at the moment. Thought I would introduce myself because I can see myself in the future having some serious computer questions.

Thanks!

i’m doing an online course in front end development I get to use a command line and also a thing called an “IDE” which is probably a bit behind where most people in this forum are at and I kinda can’t wait to hang out and share my knowledge

If you’re enjoying yourself and/or learning it’s a good use of time.

Well, I wouldn't say I'm enjoying myself yet. I'm simply hoping it ramps up to something more interesting

I guess that's one of the tough things about this "coding" business that you lads love so much. you are so far from making anything interesting when you start... Its a tough prospect I must admit

whats the course

I am doing "the odin project"

That's supposed to be a good one OP.

I'm doing "Complete machine learning and data science bootcamp 2022" on Udemy. I got it for $10

I'd quite like to hear your experience with Odin project. Made anything cool?
I started to do that many many moons ago and didn't have the time or dedication.... I now have some free time.

Welcome to Data Science! Focus on the infrastructure part IMO because feature engineering has you competing against people with Masters+ degrees in math. There's still a huge talent gap for engineers who can build Data Science pipelines that automate gathering data, rebuilding models, and then updating the prod code with new models. Very wild west there still.

I don't know what any of this means OP :D

I don't really expect a job in front-end, I just need to do something, and then something else, until eventually escaping pharmacy into something with a future is possible.


I wanna ask my boss to move to 4 days a week and put the extra day into web poo poo and/or trying to make any of my other ideas into cash money.

no im in new zealand we don't have that degree but I am a pharmacist (bachelor of pharmacy)

it fucken sucks man. the money is fine I guess but I am poo poo with money so I need more and its dullllll and I can just feel so much ability within me just going to waste every moment of every hour in the dispensary


I would think you would have good skills that would be valuable without needing to necessarily know coding itself, but be able to tell ppl what to do , and how to make software, for pharmacy.

Can't say too much without doxxing myself due to various haters but I'm in a unique position and trying to add some extra umpH!!!! I'm very much a nose to the grindstone type of person.

The issue being that, as I said, i am so far from making anything coolll, or doing anything interesting, it seems like. But more of this anon!
