  • what’s the best combination to take up to grow up in career along with tableau..Too many tools/technologies floating in the market…I have inclination towards data science..I mean getting called “data scientist” has some different feelings..Should i start with R,and python..or look towards big data technologies(hadoop,hive,spark etc) or database(oracle,postgres) or scripting/Data viz. and web design(htms,css,javascript,D3.js etc.) or AI,NLP,ML,statistics…too many areas too explore n too many set of technology stack in the mind…there was a time when I got fascinated with web development technologies(java,android) in starting of my career but now finding more rapid growth in BIDW/Analytics segment.Please highlight on this to avoid confusion.emphasize what would be the ideal learning path anticipating next 5-7 years.Currently I am working in a MNC as tableau developer with some knowledge of SQL and core of DV concepts. (Exp. 4+ years total -2yrs in BI segment)
