Good class for a quick summary of a lot of options within Python. As a R user looking to possibly make some move to Python, it was helpful to see how it could possibly replace some of my workflow. The only criticism is that some of the packages/modules that were covered, it may be best to have separate courses for them as individuals that didn't have much background in python or data analytics, the pace was probably too fast.
