Key takeaways

Time Series Analysis

  • Effectively deal with timestamps and formatting with Pandas
  • Master fundamental time series analysis techniques with aggregations
  • Quickly identify trends in the data with rolling averages and various smoothing techniques

Forecasting & Modeling

  • Decompose time series data into trends, seasonality, non-cyclical components, and residuals
  • Extrapolate current dynamics into the future with various time series models such as ARIMA and LSTMs
  • Explicitly model trends, seasonality, and holiday effects with Prophet


This program focuses on time series analysis using Pandas in Python. It covers key topics including timestamp features, aggregations, rolling averages, decomposition, and modeling with scikit-learn and Prophet.

  • Timestamp features in Pandas
