Data Science Experience

Apologies in my long time updating, life has been a bit crazy busy at the moment. I have a few entries cached to go, but couldn’t get around to finishing. As this year is nearly at an end for me, I should have some spare time to catch up.

So this is a brief entry to talk about IBM Data Science experience. This is a new service which hooks into Bluemix. Using Spark it allows you build python/R/Scala notebooks.

For those not familiar with notebooks, they are a really cool way to create prototyping code as documentation. It also has a whole host of extras that you can hook into to visualise and manipulate your data. As well as loads of datasets to play with.

You can check it out for yourself. Here is the example notebook from above.
