Grundlagenwissen für datengetriebenes Denken und Arbeiten

Python Basics (en)

Course description

One of the benefits of digitalization is that many everyday work processes can now be automated. On the one hand, this can take pressure off employees and, on the other, increases productivity and capacity for strategic and conceptual tasks. Basic programming skills are often already enough to make day-to-day tasks easier by automating processes. In our Python Basics course, you will learn the most important basic skills for programming in Python and a guideline for automating your own work processes by reading, processing and saving local data with selected libraries.

In this course you will learn:  

  • Use the Python programming language
  • Use selected libraries to read, process and store local data
  • Automate your work processes
  • Play Video

    Target Audience  

    This training is exactly the right thing for you if you want to present data-driven results in your company and expand your existing presentation skills with modern visualization methods.

    Prerequisites for participation 

    No prior programming knowledge is required for this course.
