Description

This learning path will guide you through the techniques and methods used to visualize data using Matplotlib and Seaborn Python libraries.

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.
