Course Description

This course is part of the Microsoft Professional Program Certificate in Data Science.

Python is a very powerful programming language used for many different applications. Over time, the huge community around this open source language has created quite a few tools to efficiently work with Python. In recent years, a number of tools have been built specifically for data science. As a result, analyzing data with Python has never been easier.

In this practical course, you will start from the very beginning, with basic arithmetic and variables, and learn how to handle data structures, such as Python lists, Numpy arrays, and Pandas DataFrames. Along the way, you’ll learn about Python functions and control flow. Plus, you’ll look at the world of data visualizations with Python and create your own stunning visualizations based on real data.

Very, very easy and quick - I finished it a weekend and got 97%. Feels like a bit of a waste to drop $99 just to get a certificate in this, and I only did it as it is a requirement in the data science program

Overall great course. Conveys a great deal of very useful data in a short amount of time. I really like the Data Camp interface they use. It is much easier to use and far less buggy than Jupyter Notebooks. I definitely recommend this course for anyone looking to learn Python, especially if they have interest in working in science or with large amounts of data.

Really very useful course. The content and exercises are very good. Best thing that the lectures are not either too long to get boring not too short to be lost. It is very good class. The instructor is very good speaker and the content is very useful. I like it and I will search for your next classes at edx. Thank you for this class
