Course Plan

LESSON 1: PYTHON FOUNDATION
LESSON 2: OOP CONCEPTS AND JUPYTER NOTEBOOKS

The objective of the module is to get the participants familiar with the OOP concepts within Python, working with files and strings and also with a popular tool – Jupyter. Through this the participants will learn how to work with external data sources, be it files or databases and also to write reusable codes on Jupyter and how it is useful as a presentation tool. This module will cover topics such as Classes, Methods, Attributes (PM), File I/O and Operations on Files (PM), Regular Expressions (PM) and Jupyter Notebooks (AM). This course aims to give students an insight in to learning to code using the OOP concepts in Python, learning how to access and get data from external sources, working with strings and text and writing code and presentation using Jupyter notebooks

LESSON 3: DEEP DIVE INTO PYTHON LIBRARIES

This module will help the participants understand three of the most important libraries in python which are required for most operations: numpy (numerical python), pandas (data manipulation) and matplotlib (data visualization). These libraries will help the participants code more complex programs and visualize data using charts and graphs. It will also cover an important concept which involves use of scrapers to source data from the www and using APIs which are a critical part of any programming language. The topics covered within this module are basics of Numpy and Pandas (AM), Operations using Numpy and Pandas (PM), Data Visualization (Matplotlib) (PM) and Basics of Web Scraping and APIs (PM). Upon completion of this module students will be able to learn and code complex programs using Python Libraries, understand how to plot basic charts and graphs and will learn how to scrape data from the web and source data using APIs.
