Welcome to (what I think is) the web's best course on Pandas, Matplotlib, Seaborn, and more! This course will level up your data skills to help you grow your career in Data Science, Machine Learning, Finance, Web Development, or any tech-adjacent field.
This is a tightly structured course that covers a ton, but it's all broken down into human-sized pieces rather than an overwhelming reference manual that throws everything at you at once. After each and every new topic, you'll have the chance to practice what you're learning and challenge yourself with exercises and projects. We work with dozens of fun and real-world datasets including Amazon bestsellers, Rivian stock prices, Presidential Tweets, Bitcoin historic data, and UFO sightings.
If you're still reading, let me tell you a little about the curriculum.. In the course, you'll learn how to:
Work with Jupyter Notebooks
Use Pandas to read and manipulate datasets
Work with DataFrames and Series objects
Organize, filter, clean, aggregate, and analyze DataFrames
Extract and manipulate date, time, and textual information from data
Master Hierarchical Indexing
Merge datasets together in Pandas
Create complex visualizations with Matplotlib
Use Seaborn to craft stunning and meaningful visualizations
Create line, bar, box, scatter, pie, violin, rug, swarm, strip, and other plots!
What makes this course different from other courses on the same topics? First and foremost, this course integrates visualizations as soon as possible rather than tacking it on at the end, as many other courses do. You'll be creating your first plots within the first couple of sections! Additionally, we start using real datasets from the get go, unlike most other courses which spend hours working with dull, fake data (colors, animals, etc) before you ever see your first real dataset. With all of that said, I feel bad trash talking my competitors, as there are quite a few great courses on the platform :)
I think that about wraps it up! The topics in this courses are extremely visual and immediate, which makes them a joy to teach (and hopefully for you to learn). If you have even a passing interest in these topics, you'll likely enjoy the course and tear through it quickly. This stuff might seem intimidating, but it's actually really approachable and fun! I'm not kidding when I say this is my favorite course I've ever made. I hope you enjoy it too.
Who this course is for:
- Beginner Python devs curious about data analysis, data visualization, or data science
Hi! I'm Colt. I'm a developer with a serious love for teaching. I've spent the last few years teaching people to program at 2 different immersive bootcamps where I've helped hundreds of people become web developers and change their lives. My graduates work at companies like Google, Salesforce, and Square.
Most recently, I led Galvanize's SF's 6 month immersive program as Lead Instructor and Curriculum Director. After graduating from my class, 94% of my students went on to receive full-time developer roles. I also worked at Udacity as a Senior Course Developer on the web development team where I got to reach thousands of students daily.
I’ve since focused my time on bringing my classroom teaching experience to an online environment. In 2016 I launched my Web Developer Bootcamp course, which has since gone on to become one of the best selling and top rated courses on Udemy. I was also voted Udemy’s Best New Instructor of 2016.
I've spent years figuring out the "formula" to teaching technical skills in a classroom environment, and I'm really excited to finally share my expertise with you. I can confidently say that my online courses are without a doubt the most comprehensive ones on the market.
Join me on this crazy adventure!
