The Python open source programming language impresses with its clear syntax, simple structures and easy readability. Thanks to the extensive standard libraries, Python can be used to realise powerful ideas with just a few lines of code - in fact in almost all application areas.

Despite or precisely because of this simplicity, Python offers good scalability and is particularly suitable for the effective implementation of complex analysis models and simulations. The "Python for Analysts" course provides deeper insight into Python’s analysis options for advanced users.

The participants* are to be trained further in such a way that they can solve specific challenges and problem in their professional field more effectively using Python. Participants* learn the following skills in a participative workshop format based on practical application scenarios and case studies:

  • Using the Jupyter web-based programming environment competently
  • Using the Pandas program library competently
  • Using data visualisation with Jupyter competently
  • Initial knowledge of machine learning using Sci-Kit Learn

Python’s specific application areas in companies are:

  • Automating administrative tasks
  • Programming web applications
  • Accessing and managing databases
  • Developing Graphical User Interfaces (GUI)
  • Analysing high-volume data sets
  • Optimising and automating processes

This training focuses on practical applicability. The training is based on a database that the participants use to learn methods, tools and techniques.
