Python: Data Analytics and Visualization

You will start the course with an introduction to the principles of data analysis and supported libraries, along with NumPy basics for statistics and data processing. Next, you will overview the Pandas package and use its powerful features to solve data-processing problems. Moving on, you will get a brief overview of the Matplotlib API .Next, you will learn to manipulate time and data structures, and load and store data in a file or database using Python packages. You will learn how to apply powerful packages in Python to process raw data into pure and helpful data using examples. You will also get a brief overview of machine learning algorithms, that is, applying data analysis results to make decisions or building helpful products such as recommendations and predictions using Scikit-learn.After this, you will move on to a data analytics specialization—predictive analytics. Social media and IOT have resulted in an avalanche of data. You will get started with predictive analytics using Python. You will see how to create predictive models from data. You will get balanced information on statistical and mathematical concepts, and implement them in Python using libraries such as Pandas, scikit-learn, and NumPy. You'll learn more about the best predictive modeling algorithms such as Linear Regression, Decision Tree, and Logistic Regression. Finally, you will master best practices in predictive modeling.After this, you will get all the practical guidance you need to help you on the journey to effective data visualization. Starting with a chapter on data frameworks, which explains the transformation of data into information and eventually knowledge, this path subsequently cover the complete visualization process using the most popular Python libraries with working examplesGetting Started with Python Data Analysis, Phuong Vo.T.H &Martin CzyganLearning Predictive Analytics with Python, Ashish KumarMastering Python Data Visualization, Kirthi RamanLearn basic steps of data analysis and how to use Python and its packagesA step-by-step guide to predictive modeling including tips, tricks, and best practicesEffectively visualize a broad set of analyzed data and generate effective resultsWho This Book Is ForThis book is for Python Developers who are keen to get into data analysis and wish to visualize their analyzed data in a more efficient and insightful manner.What You Will LearnGet acquainted with NumPy and use arrays and array-oriented computing in data analysisProcess and analyze data using the time-series capabilities of PandasUnderstand the statistical and mathematical concepts behind predictive analytics algorithmsData visualization with MatplotlibInteractive plotting with NumPy, Scipy, and MKL functionsBuild financial models using Monte-Carlo simulationsCreate directed graphs and multi-graphsAdvanced visualization with D3
