    About this course

    The course includes a series of video lectures combined with a variety of conceptual and hands-on activities to help you develop the skills in Python to write commands, manipulate and analyse data, interpret results, and visualise data effectively.

    The course begins with fundamental programming concepts, such as functions and statements. We then cover several of the Python libraries most relevant for data management and manipulation (i.e., NumPy, Pandas, Seaborn, and Matplotlib). You’ll also learn about extracting, transforming, and loading data (ETL) techniques and operations, as well as what is known as “data wrangling”.

    The course is divided into four modules and includes knowledge tests at the end of each section.
