Data Science with Python Foundation

Solve data issues faster! In this 3-day course you will learn all about Data Science with Python. You will gain hands-on experience with Python and other related data tools.

Do more with data!

Do you want to learn how to clean, reshape, or visualize data? In this 3-day course, you will learn how Python helps solve Data Science issues faster and develop Data Science models. You will also gain experience with Pandas, Matpotlib, Scikit-learn, Jupyter notebooks, and learn how to use the command line to accelerate daily tasks.

"The training gave me a lot of grip/insights on the subject. How to use Pandas/clean up your data and plotting were the most interesting parts."- Configuration Manager, KPN

This Data Science with Python training is perfect for

Data Science with Python is perfect for anyone who wants to learn how to use Python to do more with data. Data Science with Python is a Foundation level training, which means you don't have to be an expert yet. Knowledge of the Python programming language is required to make sure you get the most out of this training. Check the basics of Python here. If you are familiar with elements in this list, you'll be fine.

Data Science Learning Journey

Your Data Science Learning Journey starts with a Foundation training, such as Data Science with RAnalytics Translator or this Data Science with Python training. We also offer a Deep Learning Professional level course. If you are looking for an Expert training, register for three days of Data Science with Spark and learn all about large-scale Data Science.

Yes, I want to do more with data!

After registering for this training, you will receive a confirmation email with practical information. A week before the training, we will ask you about any dietary requirements and share literature if there's a need to prepare. See you soon!

What else should I know?

  • For the training we will use an online learning environment on instruqt.com, you’ll need a laptop with working WiFi.
  • You do not need to install any software on your laptop for the training.
  • If you’d like to use our material afterward, you need to install Python (at least version 3.6). Previous participants installed this using Anaconda distribution.
