First and foremost, I would like to thank God for giving me the courage to write this book. A warm thanks to all the members of BPB Publications team for giving me this opportunity to publish my book.
I would like to thank my family for their support, and for helping me in numerous ways. Writing this book was not an easy task. I would also like to thank all my friends for their useful discussions, suggestions, and providing moral support when needed.
Lastly, I would like to thank my critics. Without their criticism, I would never be able to write this book.
Python is a multi-paradigm programming language. It supports object-oriented, procedural, functional, and imperative programming and has a large and comprehensive standard library. Python is open source, simple to learn, and supports major cross-platform operating systems such as windows, linux, mac, and so on. It does support different domains such as Web and internet development, Internet of things, Desktop GUI’s, Gaming, DevOps, Big data, Web Testing/Automation, AI/ Data Science, and much more. The primary goal of this book focuses on subset sections of data science called data analysis and visualization. Data Analysis is the core area where data scientists spend most of their time in cleaning and organizing the data. The main focus of the book is to learn the usage of data science libraries of python. This book will guide you through Python basic and advanced concepts such as list comprehensions, lambdas, functional programming that help in data manipulation. This book contains many examples and real-time datasets that help you to understand the concepts better. This book is divided into 11 chapters and provides a detailed understanding of Python Data science libraries such as JupyterLab, Numpy, Pandas, Scipy, Matplotlib, and Seaborn that help in cleaning and reorganizing the data, data analysis and visualization.
Chapter 1 introduces the core concepts of data science, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and the different processes involved in data analysis. It also describes why Python is used as an essential tool in the data science domain, the core libraries used for data analysis, and the installation process.
Chapter 2 addresses the core and fundamental tool, jupyterlab, which is used as an IDE to create and share the documents from Python codes to a full-blown report. This chapter covers the architecture of jupyterlab and different components such as cells and cell modes for writing the code and documenting it using the markdown language and usage of keyboard shortcuts and toolbars.
Chapter 3 covers overview of python with basic concepts about the data types and their methods. This chapter also covers functions, lambdas, list comprehensions, functional programming, and datetime objects, which are used for working with data analysis and visualizations.
Chapter 4 explains briefly about the numpy library and its use for numerical computation. Here we also cover the internal storage, type-check, and execution speed for both Python lists and numpy arrays. This chapter also covers slicing and dicing of numpy arrays, statistical operations, fancy indexing, and broadcasting.
Chapter 5 guides you through a basic introduction to pandas. It also covers pandas data structures series, dataframes, and their methods and attributes. We also run through a real-time sample dataset to understand the concepts better.
Chapter 6 covers handling different file formats, header manipulations, filtering data based on rows, columns, indexes, groupby operations, and performing aggregations on groupby objects, concatenate and merge the dataframes, filling the missing data, pivot tables, crosstabs and handling large datasets using various methodologies.
Chapter 7 addresses creating date range using various parameters such as start and end dates, periods, yearly, monthly, hourly and seconds, converting the string and unix based dates to datetime objects, time-series analysis on a real-time dataset in finding the insights about data, handling different time zones and holidays.
Chapter 8 addresses a brief introduction to statistics. This chapter covers population, sample, measures of central tendency (mean, median and mode), inferential and differential statistics, standardization, central limit theorem, confidence intervals, and hypothesis testing along with practical examples for each topic.
Chapter 9 explains the concept of data visualization using matplotlib. This chapter describes a brief introduction to matplotlib architecture, the backend, artistic and scripting layer along with sample examples, parameters and methods controlling the visualization plots. This chapter also covers different inbuilt visualization plots, scatter plots, bar plots, line charts, pie charts, histograms and subplots.
Chapter 10 introduces the concept of data visualization using seaborn. This chapter covers statistical visualization using a real-time dataset pokemon. It also covers visualizing statistical relationships between variables, plotting the categorical data, and visualizing the distribution of data using univariate and bivariate features.
Chapter 11 This chapter is a combination of all the previous chapters, it is called exploratory data analysis. To have a better understanding of this chapter, we have taken a real-time (Titanic) dataset. This chapter covers the analysis of the dataset, filling the blank or null values, variable identification and visualizing the information using univariate and multivariate analysis, handling outliers and finding the insights about the data using different visualization techniques such as scatter plots, bar plots, line plots, heatmaps and making inferences about the data.
