The 4 Most Asked Skills for Data Science Engineers

The data science is a combination of technical and general skills. As a analyst you need provide valuable information to client. The below is highly useful list.

Paradigms and practices: This involves data scientists acquiring a grounding in core concepts of data science, analytics and data management. Data scientists should easily grasp the data science life cycle, know their typical roles and responsibilities in every phase and be able to work in teams and with business domain experts and stakeholders. Also, they should learn a standard approach for establishing, managing and operationalizing data science projects in the business.

Algorithms and modeling: Here are the areas with which data scientists must become familiar: linear algebra, basic statistics, linear and logistic regression, data mining, predictive modeling, cluster analysis, association rules, market-basket analysis, decision trees, time-series analysis, forecasting, machine learning, Bayesian and Monte Carlo Statistics, matrix operations, sampling, text analytics, summarization, classification, primary components analysis, experimental design and unsupervised learning-constrained optimization.

Tools and platforms: Data scientists should master a basic group of modeling, development and visualization tools used on your data science projects, as well as the platforms used for storage, execution, integration and governance of big data in your organization. Depending on your environment, and the extent to which data scientists work with both structured and unstructured data, this may involve some combination of :
  • data warehousing, Hadoop, stream computing, NoSQL and other platforms. 
  • It will probably also entail providing instruction in MapReduce, R and other new open-source development languages in addition to SPSS, SAS and any other established tools.
Applications and outcomes: A major imperative for data scientists is to learn the chief business applications of data science in your organization, as well as ways to work best with subject-matter experts. 
  • In many companies, data science focuses on marketing, customer service, next-best offer and other customer-centric applications. 
  • Often, these applications require that data scientists know how to leverage customer data acquired from structured survey tools, sentiment analysis software, social media monitoring tools and other sources. 
  • Plus, every data scientist must understand the key business outcomes—such as maximizing customer lifetime value—that should be the focus of their modeling initiatives.

The best 5 differences of AWS EMR and Hadoop

With Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR) you can analyze and process vast amounts of data. It does this by distributing the computational work across a cluster of virtual servers running in the Amazon cloud. The cluster is managed using an open-source framework called Hadoop.

Amazon EMR has made enhancements to Hadoop and other open-source applications to work seamlessly with AWS. For example, Hadoop clusters running on Amazon EMR use EC2 instances as virtual Linux servers for the master and slave nodes, Amazon S3 for bulk storage of input and output data, and CloudWatch to monitor cluster performance and raise alarms.

You can also move data into and out of DynamoDB using Amazon EMR and Hive. All of this is orchestrated by Amazon EMR control software that launches and manages the Hadoop cluster. This process is called an Amazon EMR cluster.


What does Hadoop do...

Hadoop uses a distributed processing architecture called MapReduce in which a task is mapped to a set of servers for proce…

Top 20 ultimate ETL Questions really good for interviews

How to print/display the first line of a file?  there are many ways to do this. However the easiest way to display the first line of a file is using the [head] command.  $> head -1 file. Txt no prize in guessing that if you specify [head -2] then it would print first 2 records of the file.  another way can be by using [sed] command. [sed] is a very powerful text editor which can be used for various text manipulation purposes like this.  $> sed '2,$ d' file. Txt how does the above command work?  The 'd' parameter basically tells [sed] to delete all the records from display from line 2 to last line of the file (last line is represented by $ symbol). Of course it does not actually delete those lines from the file, it just does not display those lines in standard output screen. So you only see the remaining line which is the 1st line.  how to print/display the last line of a file?  the easiest way is to use the [tail] command.  $> tail -1 file. Txt if you want to do it using…

5 Things About AWS EC2 You Need to Focus!

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) - is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale cloud computing easier for developers.
Amazon EC2’s simple web service interface allows you to obtain and configure capacity with minimal friction.

The basic functions of EC2... 
It provides you with complete control of your computing resources and lets you run on Amazon’s proven computing environment.Amazon EC2 reduces the time required to obtain and boot new server instances to minutes, allowing you to quickly scale capacity, both up and down, as your computing requirements change.Amazon EC2 changes the economics of computing by allowing you to pay only for capacity that you actually use. Amazon EC2 provides developers the tools to build failure resilient applications and isolate themselves from common failure scenarios. 
Key Points for Interviews:
EC2 is the basic fundamental block around which the AWS are structured.EC2 provides remote ope…
