Why Take the Using Python for Data Analytics Class?
The ability to mine, analyze, and present complex data has become a critical element of modern business operations. Organizations are increasingly relying on the collection and augmentation of data sets to drive strategy and inform business decisions. This is particularly true in the Washington DC region, where many large government agencies and corporations are headquartered.
Over the last several years the Python programming language has emerged as the tool of choice for serious data analysts. With a range of robust data manipulation and presentation libraries, Python enables developers and analysts to create data tools that are far more complex and customized to a businesses needs than typical analysis tools such as Microsoft Excel.
The TrainACE Using Python for Data Analytics class is a two day, instructor-led course, that will teach you how to use Pythons powerful libraries to load, manipulate, clean and present data.
You'll learn how to:
- Implement the Python data science environment
- Use NumPy arrays to analyze and manage datasets
- Use NumPy arrays to modify and manipulate datasets
- Utilize pandas DataFrames to analyze and manage datasets
- Manipulate data using pandas DataFrames, as well as modify and present it.
- Use Matplotlib and Seaborn to visualize datasets
Why Learn Python Data Science tools?
If you're a developer, or you perform a data science role, the ability to build programs that manipulate and present data clearly and easily is a powerful skill. These days nearly all organizations rely heavily on data analysis to make important business decisions, but they lack people with the skills to quickly generate and present analysis. Learning the data analytics libraries and how to use them can only enhance your opportunities for your current or future role.
Why Take a Python Data Science Tools Based Course?
Over the years Microsoft Excel and similar tools have become great out-of-the-box data analytics solutions, but the volume and complexity of today's data means that organizations often need a much more customized solution. Handling huge datasets in unique ways suited to specific businesses requires tools that can be shaped to the organizations needs.
The Python programming language offers a powerful and easy to use solution for large organizations with complex datasets. Python therefore provides the ability to build complex and customized apps that are tailored to specific organizations.
IT professionals, and data scientists with the skills to program in Python using it's data analysis libraries are very much in-demand throughout Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia.
It’s worth noting that programmers in the Washington DC region earn salaries that are as much as 16% higher than the national average. Learning to program in Python using data analysis tools will set you up to have a higher earning potential, especially if you work in the metro DC area.
