Python for data analytics

During this training, we learn how we can analyse data using Python. In the last few years, the fields of data analytics and data science became of great importance throughout the professional world. At the same time, we notice a spectacular growth in the popularity of Python in this field: it is on its way to become the leading language in scientific and business data analysis. Python's general strengths as a multi-purpose programming language, combined with a number of specialised libraries, make it a very valuable tool for exploring, analysing, and visualising all sorts of data.

In this course we look at the possibilities of Python in the field of data analysis and visualisation, including popular libraries such as NumPy, Pandas and Matplotlib.
