Data Analyst Nanodegree is of the finest and detailed courses present for online students to help out beginners who want to learn essential skills in Data Science. I started this course in December 2016 during my job as a Software Engineer and it helped me a lot in keeping myself updated with the necessary tools and languages that are required by Data Analysts. The skills you can learn are:
- Python Programming and Libraries
- Data Wrangling and Storage
- Machine Learning
- Data Visualization
You can either pay the Nanodegree like I did for 6 months or If you want to have a glimpse you can go through all of the projects and their requirements using my Github Repositories.

What really unique about this degree was the active community and 24/7 support of the tutors to review code and documentation of your Github even if you fail to submit before the deadline. They also provide guidance regarding creating a job effective resume, interview practice, cover letter, and LinkedIn Networking.
