Introduction

Elevate your Python data analysis by mastering the Pandas Library.

Vector and matrices analysis with Numpy are great, but mixing data types or labelling columns is beyond that. Thank god for the Pandas library!
During this one day course you’ll learn to load datasets to dataframes, select the parts you want and perform advanced data analyses by combining Pandas and Matplotlib. After the interactive practice sessions, you’ll be able to put your newfound skills to the test by using them on your own data.

This course uses Jupyter notebooks for clarity and as take-home material. A short introduction is included in the course.

For whom
Everyone on college level who is familiar with Python. Knowledge of Python is assumed.
