Python Workshop

This Course Includes:

The Python Workshop course focuses on building up your practical skills so that you can build up your machine learning skills as a data scientist, write scripts that help automate your life and save you time, or even create your own games and desktop applications. You will learn from real examples that lead to real results. It contains interactive lessons with knowledge checks and quizzes, videos covering detailed exercises, activities, and their guided solutions and hands-on labs to build and iterate on your code like a software developer.
