Python Library: Pandas for Beginners

Master this popular open-source Python library

Learn the basics of data analysis with Pandas

Pandas is one of the most popular Python libraries, used for data analysis and manipulation. It is commonly used in data science, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. If you are going to work in any of these areas, you will want to be familiar with Pandas. It's easy to use, open-source, and will allow you to work with large quantities of data. It enables fast and efficient data manipulation, aggregation, and pivoting, flexible time series functionality, and more.

This course will introduce the learner to the basics of data analysis with the Pandas library. First, you'll learn to work with two primary data structures in Pandas, Series and DataFrame. Then you will see how to read data from a file and explore input data using indexing and filtering. At this point, you are ready to start data preprocessing. You will see how to handle missing values and duplicate rows and to transform your data into a more efficient format. Next, you'll discover how to manipulate the data and do some processing. Finally, you'll delve into creating simple plots to visualize your data.

This course assumes no previous Pandas experience, but since Pandas is a package built for Python, you need to have a fundamental understanding of basic Python syntax.

This course will include:

  • An overview of Pandas
