Python for the Data Scientist / for the economist


Python has recently become a more than convincing alternative for scientists and as it is a generic language, it is possible to manage all the processing applied to data, from data source processing to data visualization without changing the language. This course introduces different tools that allow you to make the data "speak" in order to quickly obtain results.
