Look inside

Visualize this: you’re a data analyst in an online recruiting tech company or a large organization’s HR department. You’ll use Matplotlib to explore, visualize, and analyze processed data to identify missing data and outliers. You’ll build interactive plots for superior data presentation, analyze the correlation of different features using visualization methods, and create analytics dashboards for two types of users. By the end, you’ll be a better data analyst and have the skills to build storytelling tools that let you answer important business questions.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.

book resources

When you start your liveProject, you get full access to the following books for 90 days.
