In early October, IBM announced that it was working with the university of Pennsylvania and the Linux Foundation to develop a starter kit of educational modules that can be used as the basis for the development of a data science curriculum by academic institutions. Today, I am excited to announce that this starter kit is now available on Github https://github.com/odpi/OpenDS4All.
This is a new/revolutionary approach to education: not only is the starter kit developed on Python, an open source programming language, it is also an open source project which means it is now possible for anyone to take these modules and use them for free to develop their own Data science programs. Additionally, community members have the opportunity to contribute to continuously enhance/update the modules and therefore this curriculum kit will remain updated and relevant to the latest and greatest data science techniques and technology updates. It is available under Creative Commons 4.0 and Apache 2.0 licenses.
How can people collaborate with the project?
