Course Overview
[Autogenerated] Hi, everyone. My name's Okamba. Look, welcome to my course Reshaping gate of it are. As a professor of data science, I opened the over excavations in which I had to reshape data into his part format. Reshaping data is one of the most common tests. Indeed, a preparation, depending on the type of data analysis or visualization I divide or long format data might be necessary. This course will focus on data reshaping procedures using art, therefore, before beginning the course, a basic understanding of ours. Report. In addition, you should be family. With our studio in discourse, we will cover several topics. We will begin with an introduction today. The reshaping Here you will see the difference between why and long for my data. Then you will learn how to reshape either from why so long format. And next, you will learn how to reshape data from long white format. We will use three different methods in our for these reshaping procedures. Finally, you will see how to create aggregated data using our. By the end of this course, you will have a small it understanding off half the transform your data from one format. Another using art I hope you will join me on this journey to learn how to transform data into white and long formats with reshaping gator with our course at full sight.
