Data Analytics with Python: introduction

Data Analytics with Python: introduction
Location: City of London
Commencement Date: July 16, 2024
Ending Date: August 6, 2024

What is the course about?

This course is concerned with the role of Python in the Data Analysis process. We will explore how to import data sets and use Python libraries for analysis and visualisation. Using the tools provided by the Anaconda package manager we will use more advanced development environments designed specifically for Data Science.

Participants who will attend the full course will receive a City Lit certificate of attendance electronically for their CV or CPD records. The certificate will show your name, course title and dates of the course you have attended.

You can choose to attend this course either live online or in person.
– Internet connection. The classes work best with Chrome.
– A computer with microphone and camera.
– Earphones/headphones/speakers.
We will contact you with joining instructions before your course starts.

What will we cover?

• What Data Science encompasses
• The Data Analyst’s workflow
• How to get the tools needed
• Import and analyse data using the Numpy and Pandas libraries
• Create 2D plots of our analysis using the Matplotlib library.

What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to…

• Import data to manipulate in Python
• Use Python libraries such as Numpy and Pandas to analyse and manipulate data
• Use the Python Matplotlib library for data visualisation.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

You will have completed the Introduction to Python course at City Lit or equivalent. If self-taught you will need to be able to:
• Use print to give the user instructions
• Get input from a user using input
• Create variables and collect and store data of different data types
• Use the if and elif for selection
• Use for and while loops

You should also be able to follow spoken instructions, read written instructions and information, and discuss work with your tutor in English.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

There will be some theoretical underpinning to the course, but it is nearly all practical, through demonstrations and practical programming and problem solving activities.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?

No other costs.
