About the Course

This course will introduce the learner to the basics of the python programming environment, including fundamental python programming techniques such as lambdas, reading and manipulating csv files, and the numpy library. The course will introduce data manipulation and cleaning techniques using the popular python pandas data science library and introduce the abstraction of the Series and DataFrame as the central data structures for data analysis, along with tutorials on how to use functions such as groupby, merge, and pivot tables effectively. By the end of this course, students will be able to take tabular data, clean it, manipulate it, and run basic inferential statistical analyses. This course should be taken before any of the other Applied Data Science with Python courses: Applied Plotting, Charting & Data Representation in Python, Applied Machine Learning in Python, Applied Text Mining in Python, Applied Social Network Analysis in Python....

The course had helped in understanding the concepts of NumPy and pandas. The assignments were so helpful to apply these concepts which provide an in-depth understanding of the Numpy as well as pandans

overall the good introductory course of python for data science but i feel it should have covered the basics in more details .specially for the ones who do not have any prior programming background .

This is an intro class but it feels like Data Science 5000. Be prepared for long nights, but I feel there will be a payoff.

Takes some more time than it is said in the course. I didn't have any experience in Python so that is probably the reason.

The Video content is not satisfactory. The content must be improved. It does cover only the edge. This should be enriched.

Curso muito bom e esclarecedor, apenas as atividades a serem desenvolvidas que são um pouco mal apresentadas ao estudante.

Good course - requires a lot of self-learning, but that's not a huge problem. I think we could use a little more support.

The assignment is useful, however, the grading does not give much information on the submission except the points awarded.

First, classes give you knowledge about topics. Then,


assignments come which encourages you to learn more.

In my opinion, the assignments problems could be more clearily explained, I think it could be improved for next sessions.

The videos could have been more Assignment friendly, as the assignments were tough to crack after seeing just the basics

The assignments and the projects touched upon not just the basics. The video lectures could've been a bit more detailed.

The pace of the course is fast, need quite a bit of python experience and a lot of study outside of the course material.

First two weeks are great. The third week becomes a bit disporportionately difficult. The autograder is very inflexible.

Difficult, but do-able. Recommend having a strong baseline understanding of Python + Jupyter Notebooks before starting.

Great material, but the lectures go extremely fast and have no external notes. The last assignment is way out of scope.
