What you'll learn in this data science course:

Our program serves as the foundation for many well-known concepts of data science. We teach practical techniques and algorithms for extracting and studying useful knowledge from data. This course is not a theory class as we believe there are many ways to learn statistics and analytics concepts on your own. We are providing students with a set of practical tools for data science and knowledge on how to apply Python to solve linear algebra, statistics, and probability problems. 

This course is designed to fill the gap between theoretical academic research and the needs of the industry. We will start with a crash course on the basics of the Python programming language and then learn how to use Python to turn raw data into insight and knowledge.  

What to expect from this program: 
Fundamental introduction to Data Science using Python programming language, practical application of different statistical, analytical and linear algebra models to a variety of data science projects, and feeling comfortable enough to apply acquired knowledge on your own seeking a junior data scientist position.  

Who this program is for: 
Novice and people with no previous programming experience, seeking a comprehensive course to enter the field of data and analytics and become data scientists. 

How this program is organized: 
Lecture on new topics takes about 90 minutes and starts at 10.00am. After lecture, students start working on new exercises with instructor guidance. Around 1.00pm students present and discuss their work with instructors, learn alternative solutions, and best practices from instructors and invited data scientist professionals.  

You will learn: 
  • Discover best practices for data analysis and start on the path to becoming a data scientist 
  • Learn and practice essential tools for data analytics: NumPy, Pandas and Matplotlib 
  • Learn to find solutions to problems by analyzing data using appropriate tools 
  • Master your analytical skills by working on real life projects 
  • Implement the core Data Science techniques of Linear Algebra, Probability, Gradient Descent, and Linear Regression 
By the end of this course, you will have a Data Analytics Project to present to potential employers

Art Yudin is an excellent instructor and teaches a very well organized course in a very approachable, friendly manner. Further, he is very enthusiastic and goes above and beyond in helping his students. He kindly helped me troubleshoot various aspects of a dataset I have been working on for my own work, for which I am incredibly grateful. I would gladly take more Python course with him.

I didn't expect to learn much in a 4 session Python course, but Art's teaching style was very fitting for the subject. As the Chinese proverb states: Tell me, I’ll forget. Show me, I’ll remember. Involve me, I’ll understand.

Excellent and enjoyable class! Art has a systematic method of teaching that allows for relevant tangents based on the interests of the class. We even spent an entire class on a project I had for work and from which the other students benefitted also. Art is great at focusing on the proper way to think (data types and data structures!) and the logic behind the code, as well as explaining all the concepts and syntax in a methodical fashion that builds well upon previous material. He is also 100% accessible outside of classroom hours for help/questions etc. I am continuing with many other Practical Programming classes. Highly recommend!

If you are thinking about a career in analytics and data science or just fascinated by the endless possibilities of coding, Python for Data Science course from Practical Programming is a must. Art is an expert in Python programming. He always makes sure students clearly understand the topic and actively participate in discussions. He makes classes very interesting and always provides real world examples that make such a huge difference. I especially liked various projects we were working on during the classes. Projects helped me to solidify my newly acquired skills and apply those skills on real life meaningful projects. Data science is a fascinating field and recent report from states that data scientist is the hottest job on a market for the third consecutive year with a very high demand, competitive salary, as well as high job satisfaction. I am planning to take more courses from practical programming and recommended the data science course I took to all my friends who are interested in data science and coding.
