Data Wrangling with Python

by Pratheerth Padman

In this course, Data Wrangling with Python, you'll learn about various functions and procedures that will help you get your data in order, providing a clean and well-constructed dataset for further data analysis and machine learning.

What you'll learn

Machine Learning and Data analytics in general follows the garbage-in/garbage-out principle. If you want to learn from or predict based on your data, you need to make sure that data is well constructed and cleaned. This course, Data Wrangling with Python, is aimed at helping you do exactly that. First, you’ll see how to merge data from different sources using the methods concat, append, and merge. Next, you’ll discover how to combine data into groups. The primary function used here is groupby. In the next two sections, you’ll explore how to transform and normalize data. You’ll learn why these processes are necessary, and then proceed to see how they work in practice. Finally, you’ll examine important processes such as One Hot Encoding, which enables further processing during data analysis. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have thorough knowledge of data wrangling which will help you immensely during your data analysis and machine learning projects.
