Tech For Development -T4D would like to invite you to a high impact Training Course in Python for Data Analysis and Visualization to be held in Nairobi, Kenya from 9th to 13th Dec, 2019

Course Description

Data analysis is the process of evaluating data using analytical and statistical tools to discover useful information and aid in decision making. There are several data analysis methods including data mining, text analytics, business intelligence and data visualization.

Data is everywhere. That means more companies are tracking, analyzing, and using the insights they find to make better decisions. In this course, you’ll learn the fundamentals of data analysis and visualization while building Python skills

This course will take you from the basics of Python to exploring many different types of data. You will learn how to prepare data for analysis, perform simple statistical analysis, create meaningful data visualizations, predict future trends from data, and more.
