I've decided to upgrade my programming skills a bit and get deeper into data mining. In particular, I want to become more adept at handling transactional databases and text processing, two areas which come up frequently at my current job.
That's why the coursera specialization (https://www.coursera.org/specialization/datamining/20?utm_medium=courseDescripTop) came at exactly the right time. I'll be updating this blog with code snippets as I follow along. All code can be found at my github page: https://github.com/phildeutsch/data_mining.
