A data engineer builds the pipelines to connect data input to analysis.

Pandas provides tools for working with tabular data, i.e. data that is organized into tables that have rows and columns. Tabular data has a lot of the same functionality as SQL or Excel, but Pandas adds the power of Python.After learning Pandas, you’ll be able to ingest, clean, and aggregate large quantities of data, and then use that data with other Python modules like Scipy (for statistical analysis) or Matplotlib (for visualization).

This course will cover how to create Pandas DataFrames, calculate aggregates, and merge multiple tables.

This course will introduce you to all of the tools you will need to get started off-platform as well as some helpful tricks for each technology. These are the most common technologies used by Data Professionals across sectors.

This course will teach you how to do data science projects on your own computer locally. In this course, you will learn about: * Using the Command Line * Installing and using Jupyter Notebooks * Setting up and using PostgreSQL

We use our mouse and fingers to click images of icons and access files, programs, and folders on our devices. However, this is just one way for us to communicate with computers.

The command line is a quick, powerful, text-based interface developers use to more effectively and efficiently communicate with computers to accomplish a wider set of tasks. Learning how to use it will allow you to discover all that your computer is capable of!

By the end of the course, you will be able to navigate, access, and modify files and folders on your computer—all without a mouse!
