Event description

Description

Python is a powerful programming language that is a very popular tool in Data Science and analytics workflows. While MS Excel has long held the crown as the most popular analytics tool in all departments and at all levels of business, Python is quickly bubbling to the top as a much better alternative for big data sets, that can do everything Excel can, and more.

If you have been working with Excel and are ready to try Python for your analysis work, then this is the course for you! Whether you have experience programming, or are looking to get started for the first time, this course will put you on the fast track to honing your skills.

The content covered in this class is part of the computer science course that the instructor is teaching at Harvard University.

Have a schedule conflict? All of our instructor-led sessions are video recorded and shared with you after each class, so you can review any of the sessions at your leisure and as often as you want.


Takeaways

  • Learn up-to-date skills in live online sessions with a Harvard instructor.

  • Get your Certificate of Completion of Python for Data Analysis, and showcase it on your LinkedIn profile.

  • Translate everything you do in Excel into Python.

  • Get hands-on experience writing Python code.

  • Produce insightful data visualizations.

  • Conduct important data analysis tasks such as reading, summarizing, filtering, and sorting data.

By the end of the workshop you will have covered:

  • the essentials of programming in Python;

  • the tools of the trade;

  • hands-on programming experience that you'll be able to immediately apply to data analytics.

This course is designed as a stand-alone introduction to the data analysis aspects of Python.

How our sessions work

We host these live online classes out of our office in Cambridge, MA. Guests tune in online to watch the live presentations. During each session as well as in between, we set up a Slack channel where students can collaborate and/or submit questions and have them answered by the instructor. You'll be sent the webinar access information and Slack invitation in a separate email before the start date.

This online-only bootcamp has three sessions, from 6:30pm - 8.00pm EST on October 18, October 25 and November 1.
