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 is part of the Applied Data Science with Python Specialization

TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO DATA SCIENCE IN PYTHON
Excellent content and up-to-date material. Dont get 5th star because despite very well crafted Exams, there are evidently some problems with explanations and the "grader" ends up being too restrict.
This is the practical course.There is some concepts and assignments like: pandas, data-frame, merge and time. The asg 3 and asg4 are difficult but I think that it's very useful and improve my ability.
The assessments, quizzes, and course coverage are quite good. The main points are covered, although it does not cover everything. Additionally, it provides opportunities to learn and conduct research.
It is a great course to get started in the field of data science. It just require basic knowledge of python. This course teaches you basics of numpy and pandas and how to apply them in data science
