Technology is used by millions of us every day, but do we understand how the technology we use actually works?
While being able to use a computer or digital device is useful in our modern world, this course, part of the Big Data MicroMasters program, will help you understand how digital technologies work and will develop your coding skills.
You will learn algorithm design as well as fundamental programming concepts such as data, selection, iteration and functional decomposition, data abstraction and organisation.
This course will test your knowledge and skills in solving small-scale data science problems working with real-world datasets and develop your understanding of big data in the world around you.
