Course Overview

Next Level Python for Data Science and /or Machine Learning covers the essentials of using Python as a tool for data scientists to perform exploratory data analysis, complex visualizations, and large-scale distributed processing on “Big Data”. In this course we cover essential mathematical and statistics libraries such as NumPy, Pandas, SciPy, SciKit-Learn, TensorFlow, as well as visualization tools like matplotlib, PIL, and Seaborn.  This course is ‘intermediate level’ as it assumes that attendees have solid data analytics and data science background and have basic Python knowledge.  Topics are introductory in nature, but are covered in-depth, geared for experienced students.

This course is approximately 50% hands-on, combining expert lecture, real-world demonstrations and group discussions with machine-based practical labs and exercises.  Our engaging instructors and mentors are highly experienced practitioners who bring years of current "on-the-job" experience into every classroom.  Working in a hands-on learning environment, guided by our expert team, attendees will learn how to:

  • How to work with Python in a Data Science Context
  • How to use NumPy, Pandas, and MatPlotLib
  • How to create and process images with PIL
  • How to visualize with Seaborn
  • Key features of SciPy and Scikit Learn

Need different skills or topics?  If your team requires different topics or tools, additional skills or custom approach, this course may be further adjusted to accommodate.  We offer additional python, data science, AI / machine learning and other related topics that may be blended with this course for a track that best suits your needs. Our team will collaborate with you to understand your needs and will target the course to focus on your specific learning objectives and goals.
