Data Analysis with Python: Zero to Pandas is an online course intended to provide a coding-first introduction to data analysis.
The course takes a hands-on coding-focused approach and will be taught using live interactive Jupyter notebooks, allowing students to follow along and experiment. Theoretical concepts will be explained in simple terms using code. Participants will receive weekly assignments and work on a project with a real-world dataset to test their skills. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive a certificate of completion.
The following topics are covered:
The course is called “Zero to Pandas” because it assumes no prior knowledge of Python (i.e. you can start from Zero), and by the end of the five weeks, you’ll be familiar with running data analysis with Python.

This course runs for 6 weeks. You can enroll, watch the session recordings and submit the assignments and course project during this period. The submissions will be evaluated by us and you shall be provided with the certificate on successful completion of all assignments and project.
This is a beginner-friendly course, and no prior knowledge of Data Science or Python is assumed. You DON’T require a college degree (B.Tech, Masters, PhD etc.) to participate in this course.
You do need to have a computer (laptop/desktop) with a good internet connection to watch the video lectures, run the code online, and participate in the forum discussions.
To become eligible for a “Certificate of Completion”, you need to satisfy the all of following criteria:
More details regarding the assignments and the course project will be shared during the course. Please note that we reserve the right to withhold/cancel any participant’s certificate if we are not satisfied with the quality of their submissions or find them in violation of the Code of Conduct and Academic Honesty Policy.
The Certificate of Completion is FREE of COST.
The Certificate of Completion will be issued by Jovian . Please note that Jovian is not a registered educational institution, and this certificate will not count towards your higher education/college credits. The certificate simply indicates that you have completed all the required coursework for this course. Moreover, Jovian reserves the right to withhold/cancel any participant’s certificate if we are not satisfied with the quality of their submissions or find them in violation of the Code of Conduct.
Video lectures are available on the course page. Go to zerotopandas.com and open the particular lesson. You will find the video inside the lesson page.
No, you do not need to install any additional software on your computer to participate in this course. You just need a computer (laptop/desktop) with a working internet connection and a modern web browser (like Google Chrome or Firefox) to watch the lectures, participate in forum discussions, and complete the assignments.
You will be able to do all the assignments using free online computing platforms that you can access from your web browser. More details about these will be shared during the video lectures and on the individual assignment threads.
No, for this course you do not require any Graphical Processing Unit(GPU). If in case you require a GPU, you don't have to buy it. Online Platforms like Google Colab provides free access to GPUs for a limited amount of time every week. The free tier should be sufficient to fulfill all your requirements.
The lectures will be taught using Jupyter notebooks, an browser-based interactive programming environment. The lecture notebooks and assignements will be shared using Jovian, a platform for sharing Jupyter notebooks and data science projects. You will be able to run the shared Jupyter notebooks directly from Jovian.
The coursework should not take up more than 8-10 hours per week. If you’re able to do it in lesser time, that’s great.
In general, even if you’re a full-time student or working professional, you should be able to follow along and complete the coursework comfortably, if you remain motivated.
Sure, you can audit the course by just viewing the video lectures, but we highly recommend that you try out the assignments and put in the work required to earn a certificate. Doing the assignments will help you apply the concepts and get hands-on experience with data analysis. Interactive Juptyer notebooks are a great way to learn & experiment with the code, and we’ve put in a lot of effort to prepare these resources for you. We hope you will find it worthwhile to do the assignments & exercises.
No, there is no textbook for this course. This course is taught entirely using Jupyter notebook, which include a fair bit of explanation along with code, graphs, links to references etc. We will provide links to reading material, blog posts & other free resources online.
