Advanced Concepts with Data Structures

Course - 00:21:00

Let’s get into advanced concepts. In this course, we will use lists of dictionaries, dictionaries of lists, and list comprehensions to combine it and automate data manipulation. Dartanion does a deep dive into advanced concepts with data structures to achieve automation.

Python Functions

Course - 00:41:00

Python functions are reusable chunks of code that perform a specific task, making your code more organized and efficient. They help prevent repetitive code, making it easier to maintain and troubleshoot your programs.​ You can pass different types of data, such as strings, numbers, lists, or dictionaries, as arguments to a function.​

Introduction to Pandas

Course - 01:14:00

Pandas is a user-friendly Python library designed for data manipulation and analysis tasks, making it a useful tool for anyone working with data. With Pandas, you can easily load, clean, transform, and visualize large datasets using its two main data structures: series and DataFrames.

Working with DataFrames

Course - 01:34:00

A DataFrame is similar to a table in a spreadsheet, consisting of rows and columns, with each cell containing a data value.​ You can create a DataFrame by importing data from various sources, such as CSV or Excel files, or by manually defining the data using dictionaries or lists.​ DataFrames allow you to perform various operations, such as filtering, sorting, and grouping data, as well as calculating statistical measures.​

Data Processing with Pandas

Course - 01:21:00

For business applications, you want to position your programs to be flexible and eliminate hard-coded values.​ Most user-interfaces allow users to enter values and processes data on the backend.​ Good user interfaces check for valid values and return an error if exceptions are detected.​
