Python Courses - Beginner

Learn the basics of Python programming

Python is a very versatile programming language, broad in its application due to its simplicity and power. While Python can be used for everything from developing websites to programming robots, our courses focus on using Python for data analytics.

Our Python Beginner course focuses on the fundamentals of working with Python for Data Analysis. We introduce Anaconda, JupyterLab, and the basics of Python syntax. You will learn how to work with objects in Python, access and manipulate dataframes, how to use functions and methods, and create basic visualisations.
