Python is one of the most searched topics on Stack Overflow. Due to its flexibility and the range of applications that it can be used for, it's fast becoming the most sought-after language in any developer’s portfolio.

This course will start from the very beginning; installing Python 3, setting up your development environment and writing your first lines of code. By the end of the two days, you’ll have a solid understanding of Python and will have gained experience in working with data.

Through project-based learning you’ll have the chance to learn through practical experiences, as you’ll be working with all the general concepts of the python language as well as performing exercises in retrieving, processing and visualizing data.

Our Python for Data Science course is delivered via Virtual Classroom. We also offer it as a private training session that can be delivered virtually or at a location of your choice in the US.
