A staggering amount of data is created everyday; analyzing and organizing this enormous amount of data can be quite a complex task. Haskell is a powerful and well-designed functional programming language that is designed to work with complex data. It is trending in the field of data science as it provides a powerful platform for robust data science practices.
This course will introduce the basic concepts of Haskell and move on to discuss how Haskell can be used to solve the issues by using the real-world data.
The course will guide you through the installation procedure, after you have all the tools that you require in place, you will explore the basic concepts of Haskell including the functions, and the data structures.
It will also discuss the various formats of raw data and the procedures for cleaning the data and plotting them.
With a good hold on the basics of Haskell and data analysis, you will then be introduced to advanced concepts of data analysis such as Kernel Density Estimation, Hypothesis Testing, Regression Analysis, Text Analysis, Clustering, Naïve Bayes Classification, and Principal Component Analysis.
Why go for this course?
We've spent the last decade working to help developers stay relevant. The structure of this course is a result of deep and intensive research into what real-world developers need to know in order to be job-ready. We don't spend too long on theory, and focus on practical results so that you can see for yourself how things work in action.
This course follows an example-based approach that will take you through learning Haskell initially, and then learning to manipulate data and visualizing it, and then gradually building your skill level where you can perform advanced algorithms on the data, such that you can make more sense of the data and interpret the future, or give suggestions. It's a blend of text, videos, code examples, and assessments, which together makes your learning journey all the more exciting and truly rewarding. It includes sections that form a sequential flow of concepts covering a focused learning path presented in a modular manner. This helps you learn a range of topics at your own speed and also move towards your goal of learning Haskell.
After completing this course, you will be equipped to analyze data and organize them using advanced algorithms.
