Hello,

After exhausting myself in search of a data analytics everywhere, i arrived here.
Can anyone please guide me on where and how to get data analytics/ Business analytics certification with emphasis on predictive analysis using phyton in karachi?
I work as a lead O&M engineer in 50 MW power plant and i have swathes of data on my plant vitals, i want to learn this skill as i would be able to do predictive analysis on my plant maintenance, fuel consumption and generation and in O&M domain its a big deal. Currently power plants avail these services from abroad and it kills me the amount they charge on these services. I know you cannot learn this skill overnight it will take work of a year at least.
Currently IBA karachi offers 4 month course, but its doesn't include any reference to phyton with emphasis to excel and its really expensive.

All help is appreciated.

https://www.coursera.org/learn/data-analysis-with-python

for certifications, you will have to take online test, best here you will be able to get is training of some sorts.....
their CAP (Certified Analytics Professional) , IBM Certified Data Engineer and many more. look into which suits you.

Well i have looked into online classes especially coursera, IBM and edx online courses,
Its hard to find motivation for online courses especially if you lack the background for it. I would rather get the basics from classroom and then after finding a foundation, i can do online courses.
The certifications you mentioned such as CAP and IBM data engineer, does institutes only take these tests or they provide any preparation for this.
in the crux i want to learn phyton and predictive analysis and do it in a class room at least for the basics of it.
if all fails, of course i will do the online classes.
thank you for your assistance.

    That's good to know. Not really a fan of subtitles.

    and the game has a surprisingly solid english localization with accurate lip sync. I played it with the english VA. Felt dirty playing Yakuza in English at first but got used to it real quick.

    Well, I guess I'll get it then. Once the PS5 update is out, that is. Hopefully there's a sale around that time

    Ichiban is one of the best new protagonist in games this year, such a fun dude.

    I think it was the Giantbomb GOTY debate or maybe the Easy Allies one. They were talking about how the turn-based combat in LAD lacks depth, and is the weakest part of the game.
    The GB crew all love it, it was their 2nd best game of the year after Hades. The only combat related issues they highlighted was that sometimes characters can get stuck on scenery cause the environments are still the same brawler combat based, not designed around turn based. Don't follow easy allies so not sure what they said about the game.

  • CerebralTiger CerebralTiger:
    But yeah, I'd probably play it for the worldbuilding, lore, characters

    tl;dr, get it. 100% chandoo satisfaction guaranteed.

    and not tied to the baggage of 7 previous Yakuza games makes it a great entry for newcomers or people who haven't played every single game in the franchise

  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    I will give it my 100% recommendation. It is as charming, if not more so, than Judgment in terms of lore, world building and especially characters.

    @Chandoo I'd like to get Yakuza: LAD at some point (preferably when the PS5 patch arrives), but everyone says the combat is kinda bad. What are your thoughts on this? I enjoyed Judgment's combat, but not sure about the switch to turn-based.
    I don't know why anyone would say it's "bad". It's a traditional JRPG, so if someone likes any form of turn based JRPGs, this will fit well with them.

    dont think so. Seems to be the same input duplicated on both screens... unless you specifically switch to one as the active one

    pre loaded but won't play yet, DF said they contacted the devs about frame pacing and the devs said they're working on it for the next patch

  • CerebralTiger CerebralTiger:
    Yeah, most likely. The way the entire scene changes in an instant in single-screen mode is pretty cool. Have you downloaded it?

    Yeah, seems to be the case. Though, I'm curious to know how we're actually controlling both characters simultaneously lol

    to be fair one window in MGS 4 was running a scripted Vamp/Raiden fight. Medium seems to have active game play with RT and individual full screen effects in both of its windows, so its a lot more ambitious :p

    Man, didn't MGS4 render in dual cam during the Vamp boss fight? lol
    yeah, I honestly don't remember how it performed in that particular scene

    Yup, and plus you have warranty too. I wasn't as lucky, unfortunately. Had to pay extra for shipping, and there's no local warranty either.
    2 year warranty!
