Python Data Wrangling Training Course FAQs

To succeed in this course, you should have a working knowledge of Python basics, including data structures, importing and using modules, creating functions, and using the Jupyter Notebook platform.

Data wrangling is the process of ingesting, cleaning, and unifying raw data sources into a format for easier analysis.

No. This is not a programming class, but rather an instruction on data management and processing. The Jupyter Notebook/Lab applications are used for their interactive features to speed development.

Yes, these skills are fundamental to creating a data analytics pipeline. Additional training may be required to perform visualization, modeling, and prediction.

The software is based on the Anaconda distribution, a combination of Python, Jupyter, and many data analytics libraries. All software tools used are platform-independent and would work using Windows, Linux, or OS/X. The class runs in a Linux environment, but the skills and tools used would apply to any platform.

No, though we strive to keep our software up to date, for interoperability we often use older versions of packages. All the software packages used are available for any of the major operating systems.

No, we will read and write Excel spreadsheets, but not use the Excel product.
