View Curriculum
  • Python can as well be your first programming language to learn, so nothing in particular
  • Being an economist or a management consultant, a person may not be very familiar with computer programming. This course would teach you the basics of such programming that you can build on later and become much more employable than you are currently.
  • Irrespective of what educational background you might be from or what profession you might be pursuing at the moment, you can learn data analysis.

Does your profession require you to deal with large data on a regular basis?  

Do you wish you could be better at dealing with those numbers

This course brings about a solution for you by teaching you how to manipulate and analyse the data in the most basic language, Python.

This course doesn’t only seek to teach you about data analysis but also helps you learn how to apply it in real-life situations. Apart from detailed programs on learning the basics of Python and the art of data analysis using Python, the course provides you with five projects that are real-life case studies.

Starting with the basics of Python, learn how to analyse big data, visualise them, and become an entry-level data analyst.

Here is an outline of what we'll cover through the entire course:

  • Preparing your environment and software installation
  • Logical and looping constructs
  • Dealing with functions
  • Modules and packages
  • Dealing with file I/O in Python
  • Working on different data types such as CSV, JSON, RDBMS, and Excel
  • Dealing with non-relational database management systems
  • Dealing with web-related data
  • Data analysis and visualisation using DataNitro


Real-Life Project Work was done with Python:

Once we've got a grip of Python and data analysis, it'd be great if we could get some hands-on experience by trying out what we've learned, right? So here are some projects that we'll work on:

  • Project: Data management system using RDBMS 
    Problem statement: A company XYZ sales deals in solar products and they sell their products all across a country to their customers. So far they have been storing their data in an Excel file. But since their growth has exceeded and in sync with the sales, they need a concrete data management system with an organised data structure
  • Project: Store data from a CSV file to RDBMS. 
    Problem statement: Take Yahoo finance data in the CSV format and store the data into an RDBMS.
  • ·Project: Dealing with Web Data  
    Problem statement: Dmoz  is a website, which is an open directory for various websites regarding different categories. We can go to the sports section and get related websites. However, websites keep getting added. So, we need to create a web scraper that automatically fetches all the links in the particular category and stores the data in a CSV format on the file system.
  • Project: Data Analysis and Visualization
    Problem statement: UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) is an Indian authority responsible for creating biometric data-based identification cards for the Indian citizens. They provide data based on state, gender, and rejection and acceptance of the identification cards in the form of a CSV file. We need to create a helpful visualisation to explore which state, age range, or gender got how much percentage of cards rejected or accepted.
  • Project: DataNitro 
    Problem statement: Yahoo finance hosts financial data for different companies. We need to implement a solution that can get finance data of different companies and make charts based on the fetched data. We also take you through DataNitro
    [It lets you run any Python script or library - right in your spreadsheet]. I'm in love with this tool :) [Disclosure - I'm not their affiliate and make no money from their sales]
