Data Visualization

Data Visualization with Python is a live, 3-week, online boot camp in which you'll learn how to present data in a way that make sense to your entire organization. For three hours twice a week, you will learn how to build visualizations that help you understand and communicate the story of data. Drawing on the science of perception and memory, you’ll learn how to create interactive graphics in Python to develop and share insights from your data. This course also focuses on how visual components can showcase large capacities of data, the role of visualizations in data exploration, how to create information-rich interactive graphics and more. Ensure your non-technical colleagues understand the story by presenting it in clear and comprehensible ways that showcase the data and the effectiveness of your projects.
