This course will guide you through the techniques and methods used to visualize data using Matplotlib and Seaborn Python libraries. To boost your data visualization skills, you will also learn how to master the Bokeh Python library.

In the first course, we introduce the MatPlotLib and Seaborn libraries and the methods available. In the second course, we will explore the main functionalities of Matplotlib: we will look at how to customize Matplotlib objects, how to use various plotting techniques, and finally, we will focus on how to communicate results.

You will then put your skills into practice in a real-world scenario in which you use Python to build and explore a dataset of financial returns using data related to the closing price of three stocks quoted in the NASDAQ 100 index. 

The Interactive Data Visualization with Python using Bokeh course gives you the necessary skills to build dynamic plots. You will then put those skills into practice by translating data related to the famous videogame FIFA into a graphical dimension.
