        I liked the format and the structure of the examples made a lot of sense. I think in our engineering community sometimes struggles with the unrealistic example data we must work with that it’s hard to relate back to our jobs.

        Pandas is one of those libraries that suffers from the "guitar principle": it is easy to use, but difficult to master. Matt Harrison is ready to drop some knowledge on you and have you riffing your own data manipulation solos like you're Slash in "November Rain", or Prince in "Purple Rain"...
Pandas Enthusiast
        Matt Harrison is the Pandas guru, which in my opinion is equivalent to being Canelo Alvarez of boxers or the Esther Perel of therapists; he’s mastered the fundamentals and knows more than most anyone about the Pandas package.

        This has revolutionized my workflow so far. Used to commit all the ‘sins’ - lots of intermediate dataframes, lots of single cell calculations/transformations in the notebook. And then you just lose track of what the started off as.

Professionals who want to avoid the endless Untitled58.ipynb renaming procedure.

Key outcomes

Learn Patterns for Loading and Prepping Data

Dealing with raw data is a pain. You will apply a re-usable process and will execute it on your own data.

Cleaning Numeric, Categoric, and Date Data

You will master a framework that allows you to clean, enhance, shrink, and prepare data for analysis and machine learning.

Effective EDA & Visualization

Loading data is half the battle. The other half is understanding it. You will create compelling visualizations to tell your story.

Organize your Code & Notebooks

What good is code if no one can read it or use it? You will structure your code and notebook so that they are easy to share and collaborate with others.

Get Feedback on Your Work

Books or online courses are great for knowledge transfer. In this course, you will apply that knowledge to your own data, learn faster, and walk away with code you can use at work.

Study Other Solutions

When you work with a cohort, you will review their solutions and applications. Working together will reinforce the patterns and you will find them generally applicable.
