Look inside
In this liveProject, you’ll test your data wrangling and data processing skills using the Julia language. You’ll step into the role of a data scientist for a real estate company with a new task from your boss—analyze and clean housing and census data for the marketing and sales teams. You’ll employ the popular Julia package DataFrame.jl as well as powerful statistics related libraries to successfully explore these datasets, and prepare them for machine learning.
This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.

book resources

When you start your liveProject, you get full access to the following books for 90 days.
