We are proud to say that many financial giants have used Python for Finance and Data to give their workforce a competitive edge in the present world driven by data.
Python for Finance and Data is a weekend version of Data Science Immersive. Python for Finance and Data is a comprehensive course with an emphasis on the practical application of Python to data analysis. Initially developed for Wall Street professionals, this course quickly became popular among people who crunch numbers, analyze big data and simply want to switch from spreadsheets to the faster and more efficient Python programming language.
Starting from scratch we will build a foundational understanding of the Python programming language. Afterwards we will gain understanding of NumPy and Pandas, Python libraries heavily used in data analysis and finance. Finally, we will cover Matplotlib, an essential tool for data visualization.
The main goal of the Python for Finance and Data course is to acquire a modern tool for data analysis and shift from spreadsheets to Python. We spend a great deal of time on gathering data from different sources like Excel, the Web and APIs and manipulating information to solve real-life challenges. During this course we use practical examples, so you can apply Python to daily tasks at work.
