Online education/certification for Data Scientist
Looking for advice: After being laid off in March, I wanted to take this opportunity to make a career change. Based on my natural ability/instincts, I have landed on the role of Data Scientist. I'm trying to decide if I should enroll in Coursera's program which is $39 a month and fairly self paced or University of Texas has a certificate program as well (they are ranked 4th in the country) with a cost of $3,500 and duration of 6 months. From what I have read online, most companies look at your portfolio not necessarily diving into your certification courses. I'm eager to begin this journey but want to make sure I'm starting off with the best foundation. Anyone have any insight?
