Skill Path: Data Analysis & Visualization with Python
Data analysis and data visualization are essential skills for data professionals. Python offers some great tools for analyzing data and creating different kinds of visuals to recognize patterns in data and create insights. This path introduces pandas and NumPy, the two most popular open-source Python libraries for data analysis. We'll also learn the fundamentals of data visualization in Python by exploring graph interpretation (statistics) and tooling (Matplotlib and Seaborn).
