The shape of data blog

For those who are interested in getting introduced to data science, but are not from a mathematical or a statistics background  Jesse Johnson (Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Oklahoma State University) had been writing some nice articles regularly on his blog at `the shape of data`, explaining the different concepts from a geometrical perspective.

I completed reading a couple of articles and couldn't stop myself mentioning about it on my blog. Understanding an algorithm is important, but visualizing it takes us to the next level while using it. In my Bachelors of Engineering, I could visualize some of the courses like Engineering Mechanics/Drawing and got very good scores, while some other courses like Electronics Engineering went down.

Thanks to Jesse Johnson for the blog. Please let me know any other interesting blogs to get started with data science in the comments and I will add them to this entry.
