Target Audience

Data Visualization with Python is designed for developers and scientists, who want to get into data science or want to use data visualizations to enrich their personal and professional projects.

You do not need any prior experience in data analytics and visualization, however, it’ll help you to have some knowledge of Python and familiarity with high school level mathematics. Even though this is a beginner level course on data visualization, experienced developers will be able to improve their Python skills by working with real-world data.
