About This Course

Data science has become the de facto field in computational and predictive statistical analysis and is used by various organizations to make data-driven decisions.

Python is a very versatile language since it has a wide array of functionalities already available. The sheer range of functionalities might sound too exhaustive and complicated, you don’t need to be well-versed with them all. Python has become an indispensable tool for the data science analyst and an important tool for any data scientist.

Most data scientists have a few go-to libraries for their daily tasks like:

  • for performing data cleaning and analysis – pandas
  • for basic statistical tools – numpy, scipy
  • for data visualization – matplotlib, seaborn
