Apps that teach analytics
In an earlier blog, ‘The rise of Purple skills in analytics’, we had presented the rising importance of Purple People, i.e. analytics professionals who possess the requisite statistical, technology and business or domain skills to design and implement analytics solutions. Needless to say, Purple People are extremely short in supply, and for those willing to belong to this covered club, there is not a day to be lost.
And, therefore, in this blog today we thought of presenting some tech-enabled options to start exploring some of the Purple Skills. Here are 3 mobile apps that can get you started:
Learn Python (https://www.learnpython.org/)
This is a free, interactive Python tutorial and is ideal for those who may have no prior programming language experience. It provides an immersive learning environment with more lessons, real practice opportunity, and community support. Icing on the cake…when you complete the course, you’ll win a Certificate of Completion as a trophy!
Available on Google Play store, the app introduces you to basics of R Programming. Consider it a capsule version of swirl in R, and this is highly recommend for complete beginners.
Basic Statistics (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.techtweets.basicstatistics&hl=en)
This app provides a refresher on foundational statistics, including topics such as descriptive statistics, frequency distribution and graphs, data description, probability, distributions, estimations and hypothesis testing.
So, what are you waiting for? Download these apps and get started with your mobile classroom!
