“It excited him, too, that many men had already loved Daisy—it increased her value in his eyes.”The Great Gatsby
As Gatsby saw the value in Daisy, so the many areas of science(and non-science) see the value in data. Data is our Daisy. We observe it, analyze it,
manipulate it (scratch that, sorry Daisy). We find data interesting, it gives us insights into many things we normally would not be able to deduce from our day-to-day experiences, but we have to know how to handle it first…This is where programming comes in! But many of us do not like programming, or have never really had the chance to learn it, yet our chosen career/education fields require it. This is why we decided to structure this course as an introduction to both programming and data-centric programming to give you the best of both worlds.
