    Grow a sense of passion and fondness of statistics and maths, and then look up Andrew NG's short course.

    Start from Algebra, Calculus, ODE+PDE and probability theory.

    Take a look at Kaggle. Great site, great content, great community.

    just an advice.. dont just follow these trends and buzzwords like ML AI .. just realistically speaking there aren't many jobs on ML AI especially for junior devs

    @linus-torvald it's funny because technically you have to have an MSc to do data science, which puts you out of the status of "junior" immediately. I just enjoy how everyone wants to become a data scientist without getting the actual education required for it.

    @NoMad Where I lived and worked M.Sc with no industry experience is still a junior. Most of my friends who graduated M.Sc in AI had to do 6 month internship before they were even hired...

    @NickyBones an internship is fair, but to not count the years one has spent studying as experience, makes the degrees practically useless. I mean, you could get an internship fresh out of high school and build the experience, and then call yourself whatever you want, right?

    @NoMad No, people straight out of high school can't get programming internships unless they hacked the Pentagon. Not in my area.
    And no, university is meant to produce researchers not programmers or data scientists. The knowledge you get is valuable, but does not necessarily translate to industry needs.
    M.Sc gives you opportunities in roles that require specialized knowledge (like DS, algorithms), but you're still a junior. Regular developers, with only B.Sc, will simply not be considered at all for these positions.

    @NickyBones your area's system is counter-productive imho. idk, seems not-okay to me to not provide a teenager with opportunity of undergoing an internship to know if they even like to work in that area or not. you shouldn't have to finish college to realize you've wasted so much money to learn that you hate your chosen career.

    in other places, a degree is equivalent to part-time industry experience.

    @NickyBones btw, there are some masters in each field that are not research based (course-work, they're called) like masters of engineering or postgrad diplomas or masters in arts/business; which aim to make someone with some years of industry experience ready for their next major level-up in career. it doesn't have to be research-focused, even in IT.

    @NoMad There is the flip side of this. Having experience in others fields and not being a straight up CS grad. Got hired as senior dev because of my other fields. Still forcing myself to learn advanced algorithms and working through a self paced CS curriculum. I am kinda data scientist curious, but I don't remember or have the math.

    @Demolishun why shouldn't your other industry experience count? a big part of industry doesn't have much to do with your programming capabilities but your professionalism. :P

    @NoMad Master degrees without thesis are actually not accepted in the sort of work I do.

    @NickyBones master of science, sure. but master of science is not the only masters out there. 🤪 🤪 🤪

    @NoMad This is why I limited my claims to my area :)
