Welcome!

Welcome in our introductory course Environment Setup and congratulations on deciding to take the first step towards becoming a data scientist!

This course is for everybody who wants to start their data science path and are not sure how to do it. You will be guided through the installation and setup processes of important tools and packages that you are going to need. In addition, we will also teach you to use basic tools like the Command line or BASH, and you will see how they help data scientists become more efficient.
