Basic knowledge of Python

Target Audience

Analysts, researchers and engineers who would like to carry out numerical calculations on their data.

Course Description

NumPy is the most frequently used Python library for processing numerical data. It combines a programmer-friendly Python interface with the speed of an implementation in pure C. NumPy allows to implement calculations with large data series and matrices with few lines of code. Therefore, NumPy is a perfect fit to optimize the runtime of Python programs.

In this course you will get a hands-on introduction of NumPys essentials, featuring many practical examples. To build upon the basic functionality, the SciPy package featuring a plethora of mathematical tools that make the best use of NumPy will be covered as well.
