Introduction to Python for Data Science
Python is a widely used programming language to manipulate, analyze, and visualize data. It is one of the most popular languages for Data Science, especially when dealing with complex, uncurated or text datasets.
This course assumes that you have never used Python before, but you have some basic programming knowledge. You will learn how to obtain and install Python, which is open-source software, and Jupyter Notebook, which is an interactive computational environment, in which you can combine code execution, rich text, mathematics, plots and rich media.
This two half-days introduction to Python will cover some useful features of Python for data science. It will discuss various online resources available to further develop your data science skills using Python.
