First of all you need study data structures in Python like list,tuple, dictionary etc.

Then you can move to some python libraries for performing scientific computations or to manipulate data like numpy, pandas and matplotlib for visualisation.

Then the next step is to learn scikit learn a machine learning library and concepts like regression,etc.

After doing all that move to big data technologies…here you can build a model on a very large datasets..the model could be predictive model or other.

Google it for more info about big data

Best of luck!!!
