Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Pawel Kordek, and welcome to my course, Pandas Fundamentals. Currently I am a software engineer at TomTom where I develop geography cross search functionality for the online APIs. Data scientist has been called the sexiest job of the 21st century. Regardless of this statement being true, digitalized data is everywhere, and skills that contain these never-ending streams of information are sought like never before, so why not do some data science yourself? In this course we are going to learn Pandas, a fantastic data analysis library for Python, which along the art programming languages is the most complete and popular open source programming tool for doing data science. We'll start this course by introducing core Pandas concepts, and then we'll cover topics that form the foundations of data analysis. This includes data input and output, indexing and filtering your data, working with groups, and creating plats. By the end of this course you will know how to manipulate your data in basic forms with the use of Python. Before beginning the course you should have a basic understanding of Python programming language, but no prior experience with any data analysis library is assumed. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn this amazing tool with the Pandas Fundamentals course at Pluralsight.
