Exploratory Data Analysis with Pandas and Python
An introductory course covering pandas and python. In this course you will learn how to do exploratory data analysis in python. Exploratory data analysis is the essential first steep in the data analysis workflow.
This course is aimed at beginners and does not assume any knowledge of programming or python. We will take you through the basics of python as quickly as possible; enabling you to start working on exploratory data analysis in very little time.
The course covers the basics of python, from installation and will teach you how to use it confidently. You will learn about variables, loops, python data structures and programming logic.
The course moves on to using python for exploratory data analysis by teaching you the important python packages of numpy, pandas and matplotlib.
Using these tools, you will analyse covid-19 data from the WHO revealing insights about the pandemic. You will learn how to clean data and merge data sets. You will also learn basic visualization techniques as well as plotting data onto a map using Geo Pandas.
On completion of the course you will have a good understanding of the essential tools and skills needed to use python for exploratory data analysis.
