Helena’s Data Sayangtist to Data Scientist Project
So here is something that has been eating up my time lately: DATA SCIENCE RESOURCES! And I am looking for people who want to join in my study so I am devoting an entire page just for the data science project. I welcome anyone who can give up a fraction of their social life for the love of data and number crunching.
And because I am in love with big data, I will be updating this page constantly for data science things.
As of December 2014, here are the two subjects that I successfully completed in Coursera’s signature track of data science:

Belatedly, I am also looking into courses that are archived, such as this neat Data Journalism MOOC offering by Instructure’s Canvas:
Here are also some other useful reading resources that I found online which will also point you to other equally useful data science learning resources:
At the moment, my programming languages of choice for my current efforts are R programming (superb for matrices!) and Python.
Useful Installations: (a nice list will be coming soon!)
