More on Python

Python is a general-purpose programming language that can be used to develop applications, analyze data, create machine learning algorithms, automate tasks, and much more. Python is an open-source language and emphasizes readable, flexible, and efficient code.

Leveraging various frameworks and libraries, Python offers a variety of applications in areas such as data science, software development, machine learning, and scripting. Python is considered “most wanted” programming language for the second year running, according to the most recent survey by Stack Overflow. Python is also the most commonly used programming language in data science, with around 70% of data scientists reporting using it. It has surpassed R for the number one spot and has maintained this position due to its ease of use, powerful libraries and packages, clear and user-friendly documentation, and community support.

In this Python course, students will learn the basics of programming with Python and then start to apply their skills for data science. Students will get comfortable working with the most commonly-used data analysis and data science packages, including Pandas, NumPy, Matplotlib, and Sci-Kit Learn. This course offers a variety of hands-on exercises in Python as students build up their Python and data skills.
