Online Course Syllabus:

This course (The English copy of “用Python玩转数据” <https://www.coursera.org/learn/hipython/home/welcome>) is mainly for non-computer majors. It starts with the basic syntax of Python, to how to acquire data in Python locally and from network, to how to present data, then to how to conduct basic and advanced statistic analysis and visualization of data, and finally to how to design a simple GUI to present and process data, advancing level by level.

This course, as a whole, based on Finance data and through establishment of popular cases one after another, enables learners to more vividly feel the simplicity, elegance and robustness of Python. Also, it discusses the fast, convenient and efficient data processing capacity of Python in humanities and social sciences fields like literature, sociology and journalism and science and engineering fields like mathematics and biology, in addition to business fields. Similarly, it may also be flexibly applied into other fields.

The course has been updated.

Updates in the new version are :
1) the whole course has moved from Python 2.x to Python 3.x
2) Added manual webpage fetching and parsing. Web API is also added.
3) Improve the content order and enrich details of some content especially for some practice projects.

Welcome to learn Data Processing Using Python!

Hi, guys, welcome to learn “Data Processing Using Python”(The English version of “用Python玩转数据”, url is https://www.coursera.org/learn/hipython/home/welcome)!In this course, I tell in a manner that enables non-computer majors to understand how to utilize this simple and easy programming language – Python to rapidly acquire, express, analyze and present data based on SciPy, Requests, Beautiful Soup libraries etc. Many cases are provided to enable you to easily and happily learn how to use Python to process data in many fields.

 Basics of Python

Hi, guys, welcome to learn Module 01 “Basics of Python”! I’ll first guide you to have a glimpse of its simplicity for learning as well as elegance and robustness. Less is more: the author of Python must know this idea well. After learning this module, you can master the basic language structures, data types, basic operations, conditions, loops, functions and modules in Python. With them, we can write some useful programs!
