So you know a bit of Python, you’ve scraped a site or two, and got some data with it. Now get quick insights out of that data by visualizing it right inside of Python. This course will teach you how to make quick exploratory charts using matplotlib, a powerful and versatile graphing library, using the handy iPython Notebook (Jupyter) environment. You’ll also learn how to export these charts to hand over to a designer or straight to publication.

Suggested experience: You should have some basic knowledge of programming, preferably in Python.
