Compleated another certificate realted to data Science. This was was step by step explainaiton of the whole procedure of a Data Science project. It showed the pattern as a whole instead of goind too much deep into how each operation is being done. In the discussion coloum of the IBM portal some students found it way too eazy, whereas the idea of working with so much data and numbers on a excell sheet in future overwelmed me a bit.
So finally I overcame my fears and compleated this bit and here is the link to flaunt on another certificate from IBM
Now Coming to the main part of this article. The final takeaway of this course was the final assignment learned in week 4 of the course where we executed the learning of different Markdowns (i.e Fonts / Caligraphy in Coding). This has complied in a Jyupter Notebook made inside Waston Studio provided by IBM. I am sharing a link to my work as this would be the first-ever task I managed to pulled of in my Data Science journey. (I know I know in the future I will laugh that I shared a barely minimum sill level task but it is just the start of a big Marathon thus I thought the smaller achievements are worth a share)
Hopefully, more Certificates, as well as projects, would come in the future to flaunt my skills thus do sign up / follow /Subscribe or bookmark this website to get further updates posted as and when I learn new cool stuff.
It is important to notice that you can download such notebooks to your local computer or import them to a cloud based notebook tool so that you can rerun, modify and follow along what’s explained in the notebook.
Very often jupyter notebook are already shared in a rendered view. This means, that you can look at them as if they were running locally on you machine. But sometimes, folks only share a link to the jupyter file (which you can make out by the *.ipynb extention). In this case you can just grab the URL to that file and past it to the NB-Viewer => https://nbviewer.jupyter.org/
The list above gives you a very nice start with a huge collection of materials to explore. Therefore it’s maybe more useful to give you some pointers to interesting notebooks. As we have covered some toy examples with toy data in the labs, let me just point to some work which uses these data and goes further down the road of data science. In addition, as we’ve covered the different tasks in data science we’ll also provide an exemplar notebook for each of those.
While practicing work on Jupyter Notebooks there are many fancy ways to write a code markdown. Markdown are like Headings, Titles and Subtitles in a code which are not executed in while we run the programme. These Markdowns are only there to guide the reader of what the code is about or explain the code step by step or add hint or comments.
There is a cheat sheat to guide us through the variety of Markdown styles. I will provide the link to original post so that the credit goes to the content creator rather than just copy pasting the styles in this web page.
World used the television series How I Met Your Mother as an Comedy entertainment option to relax after a stressful day. But back in India, I used this as something a simulating model of how the behaviourial pattern would be if/when I would get a chance to visit or live in some other country. Back then it was a platform to learn about other cultures. Fast forward 10 years down the line, I actually got a chance to study and live in Australia. Though the series dose not exactly mimic actual life living in land outside India, but it was like a starter/refreshment course for us to actually understand a little bit of western culture, their problems, way of thinking and what can or cannot be done in a day to day life.
In the same series a character named “Barney Stinson” played by Neil Patrick Harris used a graph called “Hot vs Crazy” to define or explalin in general that a person can tollerate as much as crazyness of girl/woman as much Hot she is. Definatly I am not trying to justify any objectification of any gender as the graph was used only for a comic purpose which in their fictional world made some sense. Comming back to reality, I found another graph which relate to Challenge vs Skills origally observed in “Finding Flow by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi”
This Graph I can actually realte to while I am studing Data Science or Working on any Project.
For a simple task like washing utensils, the skil level is low, and the challege is low, so I sometimes get into wonderland in my own mind.
Where as Studing Diffrential Calculus where I have less skill and being a highly challenging task for me gives me Anxiey and I try to quit or find excuses to postponed the task.
Current target is not directly aim for flow, but to at least be in the Relaxation or Control zone while gaining more knowledge.
Please do wrte in comment section below what state of mind you are while currenlty doing any task in your current life stage. Hopefully we can share strategies to overcome our hurdles with collective information and experience.
I know I fucked up, so bad, but there is always a possibility to recover from it.
Recently seen a lot of drop in the followers of this blog, reason being I am trying my best to avoid my presence on the web. Avoiding the un-nessary chaos that I created with putting my ideaologies on the web and clashing with someone having the opposite of the thinking curve. These conversations results in uselss time waste. Thus I really stop posting. So now with limited followers, I can use this website/blog as a personal Journal instead of the mass communication targetted. (Personal Journal open to access by all….thats sounds cool idea at this moment of time, *may bite me on my ass in future, but presently it sounds so COOL)
But what I really did with the so much saved up time?
Binge Watch NETFLIX
Scatterd Watching Youtueb Video after Youtube Video.
Seriously I keep thinking What I am doing with my life at the peak age of 31 years.
I joined up edX platform for a Audit Course on Data Scinece in the month of Nov 2020.
Four months down the line, the distance learning without a supervison is way difficult that actually going and attending a class in University or College.
I know this post my thoughts are disorganised and all over the place. But I feel….currelty no one is reading it so I am free to type my mind out.
So the difficulties I face in Distance Learing are:
Lack of Motivation: You dont really feel like to study. The concept of Delayed Gratificaiton is not present in everyone by deafult, so you tend to reap up the present fruit instead of sticking to your study routine.
Having So Much on Your Plate: You think you will Binge Study all the subjects like giving 8 hours per day time to study instead of the 4 hour per week time as suggested by the cource coordinator. But in reality neither you spend the recommed 4 hours nor the ideal 8 hour time toward your study
Distractions Distractions Distractions: If you house, palce of study or the workplace is not designed to make you focus on your study, you get distracted on doing other day to day household duties as they seem importat right at that moment. (When they are really not)
Procastination: The energy required to build the momentum to study at home is never self born. Untill you force yourself to study, you never even start.
Self Evaluation: Your self worth at the time of your study seems so low that you loose hope to ever be on the market using the education you are studing. This is pure negative thinking, I am aware, but lacking the patience to put effor in study, make the false demons seems real.
Ideal Study Day : There is none. You think of the day that you will feel like studing, but it never arrived. Every day is Ideal day if we make it like that. Without dedicating at least a small amount of time toward your study, you will never do it.
Ergonomics: Sounds fantcy word, but really it dose affect. If you dont have a ergonomics sitting place to work or study, you end up leaving that work/study place more often due to the restles postion you are in.
Social Support: It sounds absurd, but when you discuss what you are doing with your peers and if they dissaprove of your activities, even that hampers your study. I know the devil is in your own thinking and thus the key to fight the devil must also be present inside your mind. But the social acceptence is a key feature while performing any task.

Resources for Learning. I know this factor is applied to some and not applied to others. For exaple there are still countries where electricity and internet are availiable only in limited quantities/time to making it difficult to opt distance learning as their choise of study pathway. Other thing from personal experince is the funding to put on distance learning. My free/scholarship pathway to study Data Science on EdX expires on 24th March 2021 and currently and very unfortunatley I dont have the $1000+ required to fund that professional certificate. I have to make my way to reach out to that funding complete that course. Other way round, if you have too much resources in the online age, even that hampers in a negative way of self doubt are you on the right track or not.
_______________________________________ I will leave this 10th point blank as you might fill this youself. My list can keep continuing as I am a bit pessimistic thinker. But all the above point seems genuine to me at the time of writing this article.
Since now you have the main points why we dont feel like to study. There must be solutions to every problem. As Dr. Anand Raj says, “Stick some glue on your seat and start studing”. More on that on next post.
