Python is much more than a programming language. In this course, you will leverage the comprehensive Python ecosystem of libraries, frameworks, and tools to develop complex data science applications. Throughout this course, you will practice using the different Python tools appropriate to your dataset. You will leverage library resources for data acquisition and analysis as well as machine learning. Dataframes will be introduced as a means of manipulating structured data tables for advanced analysis. Additionally, you will practice basic routines for data visualization utilizing Jupyter Notebooks.
It is recommended to only take this course if you have completed Constructing Expressions in Python and Writing Custom Python Functions, Classes, and Workflows or have equivalent experience.
