Course Description

Python programmers are some of the most sought-after employees in the tech world, and Python itself is fast becoming one of the most popular programming languages. One of the best applications of Python however is data analysis; which also happens to be something that employers can't get enough of. Gaining skills in one or the other is a guaranteed way to boost your employability – but put the two together and you'll be unstoppable!

More and more people are realizing the vast benefits and uses of analyzing big data. However, the majority of people lack the skills and the time needed to understand this data in its original form. That's where data visualization comes in; creating easy to read, simple to understand graphs, charts and other visual representations of data. Python 3 and Matplotlib are the most easily accessible and efficient to use programs to do just this.
