Description

In this Build Project, you will learn how to write and understand basic Python programs. You will use the most popular Python libraries for data visualization, analysis and manipulation. In addition, you will learn about problem decomposition with the use of functions and control flow using logic and loops. In the last sessions, you will work on building your own final project, where you’ll be putting into practice the knowledge gathered throughout this project. This Build Project is different from most others because during it you’ll receive guidelines and support not from one but two Build Fellows!

This project is facilitated with the support of Ada Del Cid.
