One picture is worth than thousand words!(Data Visualization using Python)

Manikant Roy (~manikant-iiitmk)


One picture is worth than thousand words! The main goal of this Data Visualization with Python workshop is to teach, how to take data that at first glance has little meaning and present that data in a form that makes sense to people. Data Visualization is one of the challenging task after analysing the data. Analysing data with sophisticated algorithm or techniques is not sufficient, it must tell the story such that one can understand the result by looking at visualization itself. Data Visualization becomes more important when trying to explain the insight obtained from the analysis of increasingly large datasets or small dataset. One of the key skills of a data scientist is the ability to tell a compelling story, visualizing data and findings in an approachable and stimulating way. At the end of workshop attendee will learning how to leverage a python to visualize data and will also enable how to extract information, better understand the data, and make more effective decisions
