Analytics Data Data Science Visualization

See in schedule

For Analytics Pandas is a de-facto industry standard and an established tool in the scientific community. Dealing with data-analysis is easy and simple - but there are some things you need to get your head around first as Data-Frames and Data-Series.

After this tutorial you will be able to work with Pandas and make simple data analytics incl. visualisations. Pandas is not only useful in data science it’s also a great tool for creating e.g. sales reports or any other data-driven report required in business. It’s easy to make fancy analytics while integrating with fellow co-workers used working with Excel.

This training will also get you started with Jupyter lab and Pandas.
