Python for Data Science: Fundamentals
In our introductory course on Python for data science, you’ll get an overview of the Python programming language and how you can use it for data science.
You will learn to code using real-world mobile app data while learning key Python concepts such as lists and for loops. You’ll also learn how to update variables, how to work with different kinds of data, how to manipulate Python dictionaries, and how to use custom functions to speed up your workflow.
Additionally, we’ll cover some coding best practices that’ll help you build good habits right from the start, and show you how to use Jupyter Notebook, a popular tool used in the Data Science workflows for easy sharing of data science projects.
At the end of the course, you will combine all the skills you have learned to create your own data science portfolio project. In this guided project, you’ll analyze different app profiles on the iOS App Store in order to make recommendations for the most profitable types of apps to develop.
