This python programming course provides participants with a solid understanding of basic python programming and some useful python modules, used mainly for data processing.
The course is comprised of two main components: python programming and advanced python modules. As part of the first component, you will learn about python programming including data types, control structures (if-else; for-loop; while) and basic algorithms; file operations; code-reuse (function, class, module) and program debugging. In the second component, you will learn to use some of the most common and popular python modules for data processing, namely: NumPy, Pandas for data analysis, Matplotlib, Seaborn for data visualization, Requests, and Beautiful Soup for crawling.
This course also addresses python for scientific calculation (using module SciPy) and some basic machine learning methods achieved when learning basic algorithms, e.g. k-means clustering, random forest.
