DATA SCIENCE TRAINING IN LAGOS NIGERIA
DATA SCIENCE COURSE OVERVIEW
Data science is the study of data. It involves developing methods for recording, storing, and analyzing data to effectively extract useful information. Data science aims at helping businesses gain insights and knowledge from any type of data - both structured and unstructured data to make predictions and valuable business decisions.
PYTHON FOR DATA SCIENCE
Why we use Python for Data Science?
Python provides a more general approach to data science. Python is better for data
manipulation and repeated tasks. Python is a general-use high-level programming
language that bills itself as powerful, fast, friendly, open, and easy to learn.
- Having a background in mathematics and statistics will be helpful but can be picked up.
- Having an interest in research, performing monotonous tasks, and persistence being persistence is a necessary attribute to excelling in data science.
The course is aimed at helping participants to have
- Practical data analysis skills that can be applied to practical problems.
- Fundamental knowledge of concepts underlying data science projects and processes.
- Practical skills that are needed in modern-day data analytics.
- Hands-on experience with real-world data analysis.
- Applied experience with data science software, programming, applications, and processes
