Description

Master Data Analysis with Python - Intro to Pandas targets those who want to completely master doing data analysis with pandas. This course provides an introduction to the two primary pandas objects, the DataFrame and Series. This is a brand new free course updated for the latest version of pandas.

This course is taught by expert instructor Ted Petrou, author of the highly-rated text books Pandas Cookbook and Master Data Analysis with Python. Ted has taught over 1,000 hours of live in-person data science courses that use the pandas library. Pandas is a difficult library to use effectively and is often taught incorrectly with poor practices. Ted is extremely adept at using pandas and is known for developing best practices on how to use the library.

All of the material and exercises are written in Jupyter Notebooks available for you to download. This allows you to read the notes, run the code, and write solutions to the exercises all in a single place.

This course targets those who have an interest in becoming experts and completely mastering the pandas library for data analysis in a professional environment. This course does not cover all of the pandas library, just a small and fundamental portion of it. If you are looking for a brief introduction of the entire pandas library, this course is not it. It takes many dozens of hours, lots of practice, and rigorous understanding to be successful using pandas for data analysis in a professional environment.
