An advice for pursuing career in data visualization?

Posted 23 January 2019 - 01:31 PM

Hi everyone,

I am 18 years old and just recently enrolled at some small non-fancy university in Europe. I am studying computer science. My opinion, as well as most of my friends,is that curriculum alone is not enough to get a job as software developer, hence we have got to study extra. Our curriculum is designed in such a way that we have enough time to study (get our hands dirty with programming and other stuff) on our own.

My main question here, if someone is willing to give an advice for a young buck, is how to direct myself in field of data visualization? What to study? Where to begin? Small projects? What else beside data viz is necessary to get an internship? How much knowledge of math will I be needing?

I picked this area because even when I was 15-16 I had always played with Excel graphs, bar, charts etc. I always found playing with that very entertaining and sort of very interesting.

For now I am studying Python very hard (just doing some small procedural programming, making Hotel reservation system etc), but the questions which are bugging my is how to proceed further towards "getting good enough with Python to score an internship" ?

Now I'm reading this book by Alexander Devert.

Thanks in advance!I hope that I convey an idea in an understandable way? Cheers :)/>/>

Woah.. let's ease up on dolling out pirated book links. Not cool.

If you want to get into that area then go snag some books. 'Data Visualization' has no shortage of them.

Example:

https://www.amazon.c...k/dp/B00OG9U9XE
https://www.amazon.c...k/dp/B07L63RCZT
https://www.amazon.c.../dp/0262526190/
