This is a hands-on, project-based course designed to help you learn two of the most popular Python packages for data visualization: Matplotlib & Seaborn.
We’ll start with a quick introduction to data visualization frameworks and best practices, and review essential visuals, common errors, and tips for effective communication and storytelling.
From there we’ll dive into Matplotlib fundamentals, and practice building and customizing line charts, bar charts, pies & donuts, scatterplots, histograms and more. We’ll break down the components of a Matplotlib figure and introduce common chart formatting techniques, then explore advanced customization options like subplots, GridSpec, style sheets and parameters.
Finally we’ll introduce Python’s Seaborn library. We’ll start by building some basic charts, then dive into more advanced visuals like box & violin plots, PairPlots, heat maps, FacetGrids, and more.
Throughout the course you’ll play the role of a Consultant at Maven Consulting Group, a firm that provides strategic advice to companies around the world. You’ll practice applying your skills to a range of real-world projects and case studies, from hotel customer demographics to diamond ratings, coffee prices and automotive sales.
