About the Book

Data science is about turning raw data into valuable insights. It is a field derived from mathematics, statistics and computer science. Programming is a must-have skill for those who want to do a data science project. Conventional programming requires writing lines of code using a programming language. However, not everyone can do coding, especially if they are someone from a non-programming background.


This book provides practical approaches to learning data science with visual programming tools, KNIME Analytics Platform. Visual programming is a CODELESS technique that applies drag, drop and execute mechanisms into the functional nodes. In other words, NO CODING requires. This book is written for professionals and students who want to learn practical data science without worrying about coding. The book is packed with theories and practical hands-on that guide readers through step-by-step procedures to execute actual data science tasks with KNIME software.
