    Hello!

    I have a non-technical question. I just started out in the Data Science field and I am looking forward to growth in this field. My question is, what journey/ steps should I take as a non-degree holder(yet) in order to land a job that would support me in furthering my studies. Please advise me on a technical and HR perspective.

    Can online badges and certifications showcasing my knowledge and skill land me a job in this field at IBM without a degree?


    Thank you! I am looking forward to the webinar.

    Hi, I'm fairly new to this community. I've just started and signed up on the watson platform. To be honest, it's very overwhelming. Is there a starting guide to all the things that watson can do? 
    Thank you very much, looking forward to be an integral part of this. Also there should be challenges for beginners.

    Hi Sam,
    I wanted to inquire about a jumpstart guide to data science using IBM watson, I've just signed up and it's all a bit overwhelming.
    A weekly challenge for beginners/pro would be a great addition in the community too! We (beginners) could use some expert guide to help us through our data science career.
