5 JavaScript Tools to go from Developer to Data Scientist

In 2011, the consulting firm McKinsey & Co caught headlines when they predicted that in a mere seven years the newly minted "Data Scientist” role would have a 200,000-person talent deficit.

Although different research firms and publications may give slightly different deficit predictions and timelines, there is a consistent message that can be found throughout all of them. Namely, we don’t have enough people with the skills to do the job. And we won’t anytime soon.
