Python Data Analysis with JupyterLab

Python Data Analysis with JupyterLab

If you are using or plan to use Python for data science or data analytics, then this is the right Python course for you. This course is in-depth and assumes that you already possess a strong understanding of Python from previous training or experience.

You will learn how to use Jupyter Notebook, an essential tool for writing, testing, and sharing quick Python programs. As the course progresses, you will also learn about Python libraries such as NumPy, which makes working with arrays and matrices more efficient, and pandas, a key tool for manipulating, munging, slicing, and grouping data. The course will conclude with an overview of simple data visualization techniques with matplotlib.
