Data Wrangling with Python

Duration : 3 Days

Data Wrangling with Python teaches you the essentials that will get you up and running with data wrangling in no time.

Data is the new oil, but it comes crude. To do anything meaningful – modelling, visualization, machine learning, for predictive analysis – you first need to wrestle and wrangle with data.


For data to be useful and meaningful, it must be curated and refined. Data Wrangling with Python teaches you the core ideas behind these processes and equips you with knowledge of the most popular tools and techniques in the domain. The course starts with the absolute basics of Python, focusing mainly on data structures. It then delves into the fundamental tools of data wrangling like NumPy and Pandas libraries. You’ll explore useful insights into why you should stay away from traditional ways of data cleaning, as done in other languages, and take advantage of the specialized pre-built routines in Python. This combination of Python tips and tricks will also demonstrate how to use the same Python backend and extract/transform data from an array of sources including the Internet, large database vaults, and Excel financial tables. To help you prepare for more challenging scenarios, you’ll cover how to handle missing or wrong data, and reformat it based on the requirements from the downstream analytics tool. The course will further help you grasp concepts through real-world examples and datasets. By the end of this course, you will be confident in using a diverse array of sources to extract, clean, transform, and format your data efficiently.


This course teaches concepts by deep-dive on-hand exercises. Throughout the course, you will learn data wrangling with hands-on exercises and activities. You’ll find checklists, best practices, and critical points mentioned throughout the lessons, making things more interesting.
