- Building predictive models (hacks to build machine learning models in no time!),
And much more!
We have created the Data Science hacks, tips and tricks course in a way that you can go through each hack as a separate module. Since the goal of the hacks, tips and tricks is to provide you with efficient code to solve problems, the videos are a demo of these hacks, tips and tricks. The videos are self-explanatory.
This free course by Analytics Vidhya covers a broad range of data science hacks, tips and tricks, including Python programming hacks, tips and tricks to ace data science tasks like data preprocessing and data exploration, and much more. Get started today!
- Data Exploration Hacks - Do you know how to get a full report of your dataset in just 1 line of code? Explore the data like a pro. Understand and practically work on data with shorter lines of code.
- Python hacks, tips and tricks - Python is simple to understand language and is the go-to language to implement machine learning. Learn the ‘pythonic’ way to code in this course
- Data Visualization Tips and Tricks - Visualizing data in the right way can be the make-or-brake situation in your meeting with your seniors. To be able to tell a story through the use of different visualizations. In these visualization hacks, tips and tricks we explore different libraries and their different modules and how to implement them. Did you know you can make interactive plots using pandas dataframe in just one line of code? We’ll see this data science hack in this course
- Data Preprocessing Hacks - Data preprocessing is a really important step before model building. Standardization, normalization, encoding categorical variables are just a few of these. You’ll learn which functions to use and tuning which parameters would be the most suitable for you
- Jupyter Notebook hacks, tips and tricks - In jupyter notebook, you can write in multiple lines at the same time using multicursor, change the theme of your notebook, display multiple outputs for the same cell. These tricks and tips help you to focus on what’s really important and that is data analysis and discards unnecessary hassle
- Other Data Science and Machine Learning Hacks - Hacks related to machine learning algorithms, hyperparameter tuning, evaluating your machine learning model. Using these hacks you’ll be able to identify new methods to take your data science skills to the next level!
The beauty of this course is that it’s designed for a broad range of audience. Everyone could do with these data science hacks, tips, and tricks! We’re all involved at some stage of the data science pipeline so this course, and the hacks we showcase, will help you out for sure.
