The course starts with a solid foundation in Python programming, ensuring that even those with no prior coding experience can participate and thrive. As you progress, you will delve into the fundamental concepts of data analysis, learning how to effectively handle, clean, and preprocess data to ensure its quality and reliability.
Python Programming Fundamentals
This introduction to Python will kickstart your learning of Python for data analytics, as well as programming in general. This beginner-friendly Python course will take you from zero to programming in Python in a matter of hours.
Upon its completion, you’ll be able to write your own Python scripts and perform basic hands-on data analysis using our Jupyter-based lab environment. If you want to learn Python from scratch, this course is for you.
LEARN TO ANALYZE DATA WITH PYTHON
Learn how to analyze data using Python. This course will take you from the basics of Python to exploring many different types of data. You will learn how to prepare data for analysis, perform simple statistical analyses, create meaningful data visualizations, predict future trends from data, and more!
Data Analysis with Python is delivered through lectures, hands-on labs, and assignments.
