Python or R on the side?
I am new to data mining and I was wondering should I be learning Python on the side as I learn RapidMiner? Is there really a benefit to me as a business person to know all the details behind every operation/algorithm. I am trying to find a perfect mix between time spent learning and practice. I feel like RapidMiner provides more then enough operators to apply to most problems, why do I need to learn the code? All the courses on data science I look at are all Python/R related. Should I focus more on statistics? Anyways any advice is highly appreciated. Thank you!
