Challenge Overview

Learning paths will provide Topcoder users with a sequenced learning curriculum and approach within the primary Topcoder Domains (Data Science, Web Development, etc). Learning paths will help get a novice interested in Data Science, build up their skill set within their chosen sub-domain of Data Science, and eventually have them be skilled enough to earn money for themselves on Topcoder.

Our Aim is to ensure members “Learn, Earn, Thrive” and repeat with Topcoder.

Challenge Objectives

  • Identify the various roles an aspiring Data Scientist can have in the Data Science discipline

  • Identify the specific skill sets required within the various roles identified above

  • Arrange the various skills into a basic curriculum for that role, sequenced in a way that a beginner can go from knowing nothing, to becoming a competent (Insert Data Science Role)

  • Determine how good/worthwhile/relevant the Data Science certificate content is on freecodecamp.org

  • Review freecodecamp.org Data Science-related certifications and determine how this will plug into the curriculum you created

Deliverables

We expect you will meet the challenge objectives. More details below:

The following 3 challenge objectives should be delivered in the form of a tree diagram or similar:

Example of a Tree Diagram :

  • Identify the various roles an aspiring Data Scientist can have in the Data Science discipline

  • Identify the specific skill sets required within the various roles identified above

  • Arrange the various skills into a basic curriculum for that role, sequenced in a way that a beginner can go from knowing nothing, to becoming a competent (Insert Data Science Role)

The following should be in the form of a 1-pager or more, with supporting rationale for each respective course module:

  • Determine how good/worthwhile/relevant the Data science certificate content is on freecodecamp.org

The following should be embedded into your tree diagram within the relevant skills/roles

  • Review freecodecamp.org Data Science-related certifications and determine how this will plug into the curriculum you created

Judgment Criteria

  • Exhaustiveness in identified roles

  • Easy and intuitive understanding of skills within roles and how skills are sequenced in a curriculum (Tree Diagram)

  • Well-articulated narrative on freecodecamp content

  • You submission will be reviewed by an expert in this field
