Hi guys,

I am web developer, mostly trained on Java and JavaScript, I am eagerly looking forward for my career in big data. I am getting quite more confused between big data and data science.
Basically I know that big data concentrates on running complex queries on structured data where as data science is complex analysis of unstructured data(please correct me if I am wrong) and I am a kind of person who loves programming on real data(mostly Java, I just love that) , so guys can you people please clear my view about the topics and please guide me which one will be better for me.

Thanks in advance.
