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

Wow, this was amazing. Learned a lot (mostly thanks to stack overflow) but the course also opened my eyes to all the possibilities available out there and I feel like i'm only scratching the surface!

The videos are good but aren´t sufficient to teach ways to do the assigments, this way assigments bring in hard things to do

the instructor has not explained the codes properly at many places. it seemed like as though he was just reading the codes!

if you are a beginner, this course consumes a large amount of time.

Though it is helpful, you need more efforts than thought

I have found some issues with the grader where it inputs correct results in the assignment, but the grading keeps failing.

instructor could teach better and wider every learning ability must be made by your self and this is making course harder

I think the method of the instructor was quite bookish and not explanatory. it felt like he was reading it out of a book.

Last assignment was *painful*: Poorly described instructions, outcomes/outpu; the grader was opaque and largely mute.

Things required in assignments could be mentioned.

If language could be made a little bit easier, then it would help!
