[01] INTRODUCTION

The main goal of this course is to help participants learn and understand basic data analytics using Python Programming Language. Firstly, participants will be taught the proper Python environment setup on Windows. 

Next, the fundamental Python concepts such as an interpret- er, data types, operators, indentation, indexing,conditional flows, loops and functions will be discussed. Participants will be introduced to popular data analytics modules such as Numpy, Pandas and Matplotlib. 

Lastly, an introduction to machine learning, including regression, classification and evaluation metrics using the Scikit-Learn library.
