Extremely Hands-On... Incredibly Practical... Unbelievably Real!

This is not one of those fluffy classes where everything works out just the way it should and your training is smooth sailing. This course throws you into the deep end.

In this course you WILL experience firsthand all of the PAIN a Data Scientist goes through on a daily basis. Corrupt data, anomalies, irregularities - you name it!

This course will give you a full overview of the Data Science journey. Upon completing this course you will know:

  • How to clean and prepare your data for analysis
  • How to perform basic visualisation of your data
  • How to model your data
  • How to curve-fit your data
  • And finally, how to present your findings and wow the audience
This course will give you so much practical exercises that real world will seem like a piece of cake when you graduate this class. This course has homework exercises that are so thought provoking and challenging that you will want to cry... But you won't give up! You will crush it. In this course you will develop a good understanding of the following tools:

Data Scientist & Forex Systems Expert

My name is Kirill Eremenko and I am super-psyched that you are reading this!

I teach courses in two distinct Business areas on Udemy: Data Science and Forex Trading. I want you to be confident that I can deliver the best training there is, so below is some of my background in both these fields.

Data Science

Professionally, I am a Data Science management consultant with over five years of experience in finance, retail, transport and other industries. I was trained by the best analytics mentors at Deloitte Australia and today I leverage Big Data to drive business strategy, revamp customer experience and revolutionize existing operational processes.

From my courses you will straight away notice how I combine my real-life experience and academic background in Physics and Mathematics to deliver professional step-by-step coaching in the space of Data Science. I am also passionate about public speaking, and regularly present on Big Data at leading Australian universities and industry events.

Forex Trading

Since 2007 I have been actively involved in the Forex market as a trader as well as running programming courses in MQL4. Forex trading is something I really enjoy, because the Forex market can give you financial, and more importantly - personal freedom.

In my other life I am a Data Scientist - I study numbers to analyze patterns in business processes and human behaviour... Sound familiar? Yep! Coincidentally, I am a big fan of Algorithmic Trading :) EAs, Forex Robots, Indicators, Scripts, MQL4, even java programming for Forex - Love It All!


To sum up, I am absolutely and utterly passionate about both Data Science and Forex Trading and I am looking forward to sharing my passion and knowledge with you!
