When should you use Python’s built-in data types, and when should you develop your own? In this video course, George Heineman introduces Python programmers to several important data structures and demonstrates their use with example algorithms. Generic data structures such as arrays, linked lists, and stacks can solve many problems, but to work through some specialized problems, you need to learn different ways to structure data appropriately.
Pandas Data Analysis with Python Fundamentals LiveLessons provides analysts and aspiring data scientists with a practical introduction to Python and pandas, the analytics stack that enables you to move from spreadsheet programs such as Excel into automation of your data analysis workflows.
Don't be limited by the Python you already know. You're ready to move beyond the skills you use everyday to more ambitious programming—and you're in the right place. Part of Python's appeal is how easily it can be used for a wide range of purposes. Get ready to learn some of the amazing features that are unique to Python and see how powerful it can be.
This course shows you how to build data pipelines and automate workflows using Python 3. From simple task-based messaging queues to complex frameworks like Luigi and Airflow, the course delivers the essential knowledge you need to develop your own automation solutions. You'll learn the architecture basics, and receive an introduction to a wide variety of the most popular frameworks and tools.
Learn how to make your Python code more efficient by using algorithms to solve a variety of tasks or computational problems. In this video course, you’ll learn algorithm basics and then tackle a series of problems—such as determining the shortest path through a graph and the minimum edit distance between two genomic sequences—using existing algorithms.
A practical guide that will give you hands-on experience with the popular Python data mining algorithms.
Whether you’re a programmer with little to no knowledge of Python, or an experienced data scientist or engineer, this Learning Path will walk you through natural language processing, using both Python and Scala, and show you how to implement a range of popular tools including Spark, scikit-learn, SpaCy, NLTK, and gensim for text mining.
Python from Scratch LiveLessons is a gentler, more entertaining, and more practical starting point to learning the Python programming language. Unlike the typical approach to teaching a programming language that covers each feature section by section, this course is structured more like a cooking class. You can follow along and execute all the code being demonstrated in an interactive notebook as you watch the video, much the same way you would watch a cooking video in your kitchen.
