Online Training Build a Data Analysis Library from Scratch in Python
Build a Data a Data Analysis Library from Scratch in Python is targeted to those that have a desire to immerse themselves in a single, long, and comprehensive project that covers several advanced Python concepts. By the end of the project you will have built a fully-functioning Python library that is able to complete many common data analysis tasks. The library will be titled Pandas Cub and have similar functionality to the popular pandas library.This course focuses on developing software within the massive ecosystem of tools available in Python. There are 40 detailed steps that you must complete in order to finish the project. During each step, you will be tasked with writing some code that adds functionality to the library. In order to complete each step, you must pass the unit-tests that have already been written. Once you pass all the unit tests, the project is complete. The nearly 100 unit tests give you immediate feedback on whether or not your code completes the steps correctly.There are many important concepts that you will learn while building Pandas Cub.Creating a development environment with condaUsing test-driven development to ensure code qualityUsing the Python data model to allow your objects to work seamlessly with builtin Python functions and operatorsBuild a DataFrame class with the following functionality:Select subsets of data with the brackets operatorAggregation methods – sum, min, max, mean, median, etc…Non-aggregation methods such as isna, unique, rename, dropGroup by one or two columns to create pivot tablesSpecific methods for handling string columnsRead in data from a comma-separated value fileA nicely formatted display of the DataFrame in the notebookIt is my experience, many people will learn just enough of a programming language like Python to complete basic tasks, but will not possess the skills to complete larger projects or build entire libraries are built. This course intends to provide a means for students looking for a challenging and exciting project that will take serious effort and a long time to complete. This course is taught by expert instructor Ted Petrou, author of Pandas Cookbook, Master Data Analysis with Python, and Exercise Python.

Investing in yourself through Learning
As a society, we spend hundreds of billions of dollars measuring the return on our financial assets. Yet, at the same time, we still haven’t found convincing ways of measuring the return on our investments in developing people.
And I get it: If my bank account pays me 1% a year, I can measure it to the penny. We’ve been collectively trained to expect neat and precise ROI calculations on everything, so when it’s applied to something as seemingly squishy as how effectively people are learning in the workplace, the natural inclination is to throw up our hands and say it can’t be done. But we need to figure this out. In a world where skills beat capital, the winners and losers of the next 30 years will be determined by their ability to attract and develop great talent.
Fortunately, corporate learning & development (L&D), like most business functions, is evolving quickly. We can embrace some level of ambiguity and have rigor when measuring the ROI of learning. It just might look a little different than an M.B.A. would expect to see in an Excel model.
