Course Description

data science Awards Best YouTube Tutorial

In this tutorial you learn all about how to use Python for Data Science.



    • YouTube tutorials are always free and repeatable - one of their greatest strengths.
    • Course delves well beyond the basics of Python and gets deep into databases for data science.
    • Course caters to an audience that already understands the fundamentals of programming and doesn't waste time on things you already know.
    • Content covers the usage of powerful resources. Accessing and installing them can provide barriers in completing the course.
    • Interaction with instructor is extremely limited unless you pay for the additional DataCamp course.
