Amit Ness gathered an impressive list of learning resources for becoming a **data scientist**.

It’s great to see that he shares them publicly on his github so that others may follow along.

But beware, this learning guideline covers a **multi-year process**.

Amit’s personal motto seems to be “*Becoming better at data science every day*“.

Completing the **hyperlinked list below **will take you several hundreds days at the least!

**Learning Philosophy**:

- The Power of Tiny Gains
- Master Adjacent Disciplines
- T-shaped skills
- Data Scientists Should Be More End-to-End
- Just in Time Learning
