Description

Are you interested in learning more data science? You know it’s necessary to be a strong programmer, but you don’t know how to get started. In this six-week workshop, you’ll learn how to program in Python; after completing the six-week course, you’ll be better prepared to learn data science.

This workshop is for analysts, product managers, statisticians, business managers and anyone else who wants to build their Python skills for data science.

What You’ll Learn / Takeaway:
Whether you’ve programmed in other languages or Python is your first, this class will teach you the nuances of Python and how to use them to your advantage in your data science projects. Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • Environment Setup
  • Data Scientist Workflow
  • Ins and Outs of Coding Pythonically
  • Object Oriented Programming
  • Popular Data Science Libraries including Matplotlib, Pandas, Numpy, Sklearn

Who Should Take this Class?
For those of you interested in learning to program in Python, so you may be better prepared for self-study in data science, this course will help you get up to speed.
