Interested in how to learn Python for data science? It's not as hard as you think! Here's a clear roadmap for learning Python programming and other data science skills.
Before we explore how to learn Python for data science, we should briefly answer why you should learn Python in the first place.
In short, understanding Python is one of the valuable skills needed for a data science career.
Though it hasn’t always been, Python is the programming language of choice for data science. Here’s a brief history:
In 2016, it overtook R on Kaggle, the premier platform for data science competitions.
In 2017, it overtook R on KDNuggets’s annual poll of data scientists’ most used tools.
In 2018, 66% of data scientists reported using Python daily, making it the number one language for analytics professionals.
Data science experts expect this trend to continue with increasing development in the Python ecosystem. And while your journey to learn Python programming may be just beginning, it’s nice to know that employment opportunities are abundant (and growing) as well.
The most Python programs will consist of three steps — getting input into the program, processing the input in some way, and outputting the results of the processing. I’m going to focus on one part of that step — getting input into a program — by prompting the user to enter some data and then reading the data into the program. This is a mostly straightforward process except for some data conversions that have to occur when you are inputting numbers.
This Edureka video on 'Python Learning Path' will guide you through the roadmap to learn Python. Following are the topics discussed:
In this tutorial, you’re going to learn a variety of Python tricks that you can use to write your Python code in a more readable and efficient way like a pro.
This LIVE session on 'Python Libraries' will help you understand the topmost trending Python libraries toy must learn.
Today you're going to learn how to use Python programming in a way that can ultimately save a lot of space on your drive by removing all the duplicates. We gonna use Python OS remove( ) method to remove the duplicates on our drive. Well, that's simple you just call remove ( ) with a parameter of the name of the file you wanna remove done.
