7 reasons to study Data Analysis at CodeClan - CodeClan

Whether your passion lies in fashion, agriculture or finance, data analysis can be your key into competitive industries. According to ScotlandIS, there are currently over 800 vacancies available in Scotland.

Data analysis is set to become much bigger as data becomes more and more valuable to businesses. According to the CEO of Fractal Analytics, in the next few years, “the size of the analytics market will evolve to at least one-thirds of the global IT market from the current one-tenth”. http://bit.ly/2uf5XSU

The ability to understand, read and communicate data is one of the most sought-after skills across all industries. LinkedIn Learning has rated it as one of the top three skills companies in Scotland are looking for.

7 reasons to study Data Analysis at CodeClan - CodeClan

Data analysis is so much more than flat sheet data – data analysts don’t work with boring excel flat sheets as it has limited options for plotting and analysis. At CodeClan, our instructors teach you how to go from an excel spreadsheet, organise and analyse using code, to making your own interactive dashboards. http://bit.ly/2uf5XSU

The ability to understand, read and communicate data is one of the most sought-after skills across all industries. LinkedIn Learning has rated it as one of the top three skills companies in Scotland are looking for.

Thrilled to have Searra Dodds at our next Digital Diversity Group event. She's a Freelance Digital Designer, who has spoken at the Women in Tech Scotland conference and champions inclusive design.

Searra will cover what inclusive design is, the challenges of unconscious bias and a brief insight into some of the groups that can become excluded because of it. There'll also be some take aways from the toolkit of inclusive language, imagery and other UX/design methods that we can think about, to combat unconscious bias. Inclusive, diverse teams and working environments can improve the opportunities to challenge unconscious bias and develop more inclusive products; how can we do better at this?

The man who got rich on data - years before Google

Have you heard of Herman Hollerith? He's the man who got rich on data - years before Google! His invention was able to process data collected from the 1880 census.

Often called the "new oil", data is immensely valuable - but only if processed in the right way.

"I was working as a Digital Marketer and became frustrated at not being able to do some of the more technical things myself, and I’d always been interested in web development. I wanted to future-proof my employability and I knew there were endless opportunities in software development.

“Without CodeClan I don’t think it would have been easy for me to break into the tech scene, and there is so much opportunity here. For the first time in my life I have recruiters pestering me on LinkedIn, and when I started looking for my second software development role a few months ago I managed to get two job offers within three weeks of hunting.” - Simon, CodeClan graduate

I will be attending some evening courses at glasgow college (introduction to programming using java) however I am looking for more ways to learn wether it be through study groups, mentors or even just some reading suggestions, Starting at 23 and with 0 knowledge or background I hope I’m not missing the boat ... nothing ventured nothing gained right! Any advice would be extremely helpful, thanks for your time folks I’ll try add a photo of my first code for attention 👌✌️
