About this Course

In this course, you will learn:

  • Introductory Python: Functional language constructs; Python syntax; Lists, dictionaries, functions and function objects; Lambda functions; iterators, exceptions and file-handling
  • Database operations: Just as much database knowledge as you need to do data manipulation in Python
  • Auto-generating spreadsheets: Kill the drudgery of reporting tasks with xlsxwriter; automated reports that combine database operations with spreadsheet auto-generation
  • Text processing and NLP: Python's powerful tools for text processing - nltk and others
  • Website scraping using Beautiful Soup: Scrapers for the New York Times and Washington Post
  • Machine Learning: Use sk-learn to apply machine learning techniques like KMeans clustering
Hundreds of lines of code with hundreds of lines of comments.

The interactive course consists of 10+ hours of learning videos, making learning enjoyable and engaging, and downloadable reading material and source code. This course will use a Python IDE (integrated development environment) called iPython from Anaconda. We will go through a step-by-step procedure on downloading and installing this IDE.
Note on Python versions 2 and 3: The code-alongs in this class all use Python 2.7. Source code (with copious amounts of comments) is attached as a resource with all the code-alongs. The source code has been provided for both Python 2 and Python 3, wherever possible.

This course has been put together by a team with tons of everyday experience in thinking about these concepts and using them at work at Google, Microsoft and Flipkart.
