Python For Data Science

Do you wonder programming in Python for data analytics and data science? Learn why and how Python is the best programming language for statistical analysis, data mining and visualization from our training.

Why Data Scientists Prefer Python?

Organizations are maintaining large amounts of user data. Hence the need for Data Science department.

Data science is the study of data - collection, organization, analysis, and presentation to effectively extract useful information.
It is an interdisciplinary field consisting of more than one branch of studies such as mathematics, statistics, computer science, information science, and machine learning to gain understandings from both structured and unstructured data.

Data scientist - data engineer, machine learning expert and business analyst, is a skilled professional responsible for using most powerful hardware, programming systems, and efficient algorithms to explore the data, do data cleaning and visualization, modeling and make insightful reports that could help drive high-stake decisions.

These data scientists need an easy-to-use language that has decent library availability and great community participation to perform hassle-free tasks. That’s why Python is so prevalent in the booming data science industry.

It is easy, open-source and has simple syntax. This enables programmers to roll out programs and get prototypes running making the development process much faster.

This general-purpose programming language also provides innumerable libraries that support data cleaning, data munging, data visualization, and machine learning. Top 10 Python libraries for Data science are – Numpy, Pandas, Matplotlib, SciPy, TensorFlow, Simpy,Keras, Seaborn, NLTK, and Scikit-Learn.

Python is in the mode of continuous development, meaning it receives regular updates on libraries and releases. So, learning Python for data science is time well spent.

Data Scientist with Python has been ranked as the number one job (source: Glassdoor). The average salary of a data scientist with Python skills is $120,000 in the USA(source:
