There’s no doubt that the role of ‘data scientist’ is nearing a fever pitch as companies become increasingly data-driven. In fact, the position ranked number one on Glassdoor’s top jobs in 2016, and in 2012, HBR dubbed it “The Sexiest Job of the 21st Century.” Yet, while more organizations are adopting data science, there exists a shortage of people with the right training and skills to fill the role. This challenge is being met by our newest partner, DataCamp, a data science learning platform focused on cultivating the next generation of data scientists.

Research finds that 88 percent of professionals say online learning is more helpful than in-person training; DataCamp has already trained over 620,000 aspiring data scientists. Of the four new Anaconda-based courses, two are interactive trainings. This allows DataCamp to offer students the opportunity to benefit from unprecedented breadth and depth of online learning, leading to highly skilled, next-gen data scientists.  

The data science revolution is growing by the day and DataCamp is poised to meet the challenge of scarcity in the market. By offering courses tailored to an individual’s unique pace, needs and expertise, DataCamp’s courses are generating more individuals with the skills to boast ‘the sexiest job of the 21st century.’
