Welcome to Data Visualization in Python for Machine learning engineers.
This is the third course in a series designed to prepare you for becoming a machine learning engineer.
I'll keep this updated and list only the courses that are live. Here is a list of the courses that can be taken right now. Please take them in order. The knowledge builds from course to course.
- The Complete Python Course for Machine Learning Engineers
- Data Wrangling in Pandas for Machine Learning Engineers
- Data Visualization in Python for Machine Learning Engineers (This one)
The second course in the series is about Data Wrangling. Please take the courses in order.
The knowledge builds from course to course in a serial nature. Without the first course many students might struggle with this one.
In this course we are going to focus on data visualization and in Python that means we are going to be learning matplotlib and seaborn.
Matplotlib is a Python package for 2D plotting that generates production-quality graphs. Matplotlib tries to make easy things easy and hard things possible. You can generate plots, histograms, power spectra, bar charts, errorcharts, scatterplots, etc., with just a few lines of code.
Seaborn is a Python visualization library based on matplotlib. Most developers will use seaborn if the same functionally exists in both matplotlib and seaborn.
This course focuses on visualizing. Here are a few things you'll learn in the course.
- A complete understanding of data visualization vernacular.
- Matplotlib from A-Z.
- The ability to craft usable charts and graphs for all your machine learning needs.
- Lab integrated. Please don't just watch. Learning is an interactive event. Go over every lab in detail.
- Real world Interviews Questions.
**Five Reasons to Take this Course**
1) You Want to be a Machine Learning Engineer
It's one of the most sought after careers in the world. The growth potential career wise is second to none. You want the freedom to move anywhere you'd like. You want to be compensated for your efforts. You want to be able to work remotely. The list of benefits goes on. Without a solid understanding of data wrangling in Python you'll have a hard time of securing a position as a machine learning engineer.
2) Data Visualization is a Core Component of Machine Learning
Data visualization is the presentation of data in a pictorial or graphical format. It enables decision makers to see analytics presented visually, so they can grasp difficult concepts or identify new patterns. Because of the way the human brain processes information, using charts or graphs to visualize large amounts of complex data is easier than poring over spreadsheets or reports. Data visualization is a quick, easy way to convey concepts in a universal manner – and you can experiment with different scenarios by making slight adjustments.
3) The Growth of Data is Insane
Ninety percent of all the world's data has been created in the last two years. Business around the world generate approximately 450 billion transactions a day. The amount of data collected by all organizations is approximately 2.5 exabytes a day. That number doubles every month. Almost all real world machine learning is supervised. That means you point your machine learning models at clean tabular data.
4) Machine Learning in Plain English
Machine learning is one of the hottest careers on the planet and understanding the basics is required to attaining a job as a data engineer. Google expects data engineers and their machine learning engineers to be able to build machine learning models.
5) You want to be ahead of the Curve
The data engineer and machine learning engineer roles are fairly new. While you’re learning, building your skills and becoming certified you are also the first to be part of this burgeoning field. You know that the first to be certified means the first to be hired and first to receive the top compensation package.

I'm the founder of LogikBot. I've worked at Microsoft and Uber. I helped design courses for Microsoft's Data Science Certifications. If you're interested in machine learning, I can help.
I've worked with databases for over two decades. I've worked for or consulted with over 50 different companies as a full time employee or consultant. Fortune 500 as well as several small to mid-size companies. Some include: Georgia Pacific, SunTrust, Reed Construction Data, Building Systems Design, NetCertainty, The Home Shopping Network, SwingVote, Atlanta Gas and Light and Northrup Grumman.
Over the last five years I've transitioned to the exciting world of applied machine learning. I'm excited to show you what I've learned and help you move into one of the single most important fields in this space.
Experience, education and passion
I learn something almost every day. I work with insanely smart people. I'm a voracious learner of all things SQL Server and I'm passionate about sharing what I've learned. My area of concentration is performance tuning. SQL Server is like an exotic sports car, it will run just fine in anyone's hands but put it in the hands of skilled tuner and it will perform like a race car.
Certifications are like college degrees, they are a great starting points to begin learning. I'm a Microsoft Certified Database Administrator (MCDBA), Microsoft Certified System Engineer (MCSE) and Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT).
Born in Ohio, raised and educated in Pennsylvania, I currently reside in Atlanta with my wife and two children.
