About Lab Challenges

Lab challenges are hands-on labs with the gloves off. You jump into an auto-provisioned cloud environment and are given a goal to accomplish. No instructions, no hints. To pass, you'll have a limited time to demonstrate your problem-solving skills and get the checks that inspect the state of your lab environment.

Challenge Description

In this Lab, you will be challenged on your knowledge of Python for Data Science, in particular on three important aspects: Programming, Data Management, and Visualization. The idea is to test your ability to deal with standard data science requests.

Before starting this lab, you are strongly encouraged to take the following courses:

Your data science skills will be challenged, and by the end of this lab, you should have a deep understanding of how Python is used in Data Science.

What will be assessed

  • manipulate data using Pandas
  • build simple Data Science application using Python
  • create a plot using Matplotlib
  • join two (or more) DataFrames
  • transform data using Pandas

Intended audience

  • Data Scientists
  • Data Engineers
  • Python Backend Developers


  • Python
  • Pandas
  • Matplotlib
