What course would be best to take?

I'm a biotech student trying to learn some programming to help me stand out to employers. Does anyone have any advice on which of these two courses would be better to take if I was trying to get into the programming aspect of the biotech field? Would it be better to go for a broader course before trying to get into the specifics of the field or should I just go for the directly applicable course? Thank you!

Opinion on classes?

Techie friends... any opinions on the following classes? To give a little background I am a long time enterprise applications guy (dms, crm, sccm, sql server, etc) and want to move more into the BI/data arena which my type of role is evolving into. I spent some time earlier this year studying data warehouses with a friend who is a master but life got in the way and we had to stop. I was looking at coursera for tracks and found the following. All really interest me.

https://www.coursera.org/specializations/big-data

Someone I was talking to thought Big Data would be the best fit for me initially, but I think any of them are natural next steps for me. I'm also taking some other smaller training sessions on the side for stuff like python.

They all start Monday. I just need to decide

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

If you choose only one course from this track, do Machine Learning for Data Analysis. There are other similar courses as well. If you're super interested in data science and data analysis, Python is probably the first language you want to learn. If you want to make money in the field, you will need both the machine learning and the statistical regression pieces as well.

Comparing Coursera Specializations

I'm a newby to using data, but it is a skill I want to develop over the summer.

These are the specializations I have considered: https://www.coursera.org/specializations/excel-mysql https://www.coursera.org/specializations/data-analysis

or the Udacity Data Analyst Nanodegree.

My goal is to gain a fluency with using/visualizing data for decision making. I am interested in using it practically as opposed to really getting into the abstract. Thanks for any thoughts!

Nope, this is my first course and it's only week 2. It's Course 1 in this Data Analysis specialization - https://www.coursera.org/specializations/data-analysis. There are some FAQs and forums for the Coursera course but they're not too thorough.

I've done a little work in Stata before, but I'm pretty bad. My girlfriend knows SAS and she suggested replacing the single quotations with double ones.

I'm already stuck on another issue - 'str' object is not callable - and want to figure out what resources I should be consulting to resolve errors and questions. Youtube, stackoverflow, python.org? Would love to hear what you or anyone else suggests.

Coursera's Specialization Opinions

Coursera has a ton of specializations within the data science realm. There's Data Science, Genomic Data Science, Big Data, Data Mining, Machine Learning, Data Analysis, and a few more.

What are your opinions about these tracks? If you have taken multiple, how do they compare? If you are currently in one, how do you think it's going? Do you have ideas on how they could be better?

For background, I have my bachelor's degree in Urban Studies/Geography and am currently working as a property accounting clerk. My long term goal is to work in the field of data analytics. I am looking to get some education in the area to allow me to get some experience to get an entry-level position. I understand I will have to create a portfolio to show the skills I have and am completely willing to put the time in. I have some statistics background from my degree. I am looking for any recommendations, or opinions on the below programs. I am hoping to keep my costs under 5k CAD max but can likely figure it out otherwise. Thanks in advance for any assistance!!
