About Python

Python has been one of the premier, flexible, and powerful open-source language that is easy to learn, easy to use, and has powerful libraries for data manipulation and analysis. For over a decade, Python has been used in scientific computing and highly quantitative domains such as finance, oil and gas, physics, and signal processing. This Python Certification Course will cover both basic and advance concepts of Python like writing python scripts, sequence and file operations in python, Machine Learning in Python, Web Scraping, Map Reduce in Python, Hadoop Streaming, Python UDF for Pig and Hive. You will also go through important and most widely used packages like pydoop, pandas, scikit, numpy scipy etc.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, One can always use Windows to work on assignments. The initial 5 modules require R set-up which can be easily installed on your windows system. To work on Hadoop on your Windows, the simplest way is to install VMware Player on your Windows Machine. VMPlayer is a software using which you can run another operating system on your Windows. So, by using a VMPlayer and run an Ubuntu/Cloudera OS you can work on the R+Hadoop or Mahout environment and run the assignments. System Requirements to run VMplayer: RAM: 3 to 4 GB. Processor: i3 or above. A 64-bit system is recommended to run the Mahout libraries. To set-up the same, detailed step-wise installation guides are provided in the LMS. Our 24*7 team support will guide you to get the set-up ready.

We will help you to setup the required environment for practicals. The set-up will comprise: - R programming IDE set-up - Setting up Hadoop - Performing R+Hadoop Integration - Installing Mahout The detailed step-wise installation guides are provided in the LMS for you. In case you come across any doubt, the 24*7 support team will promptly assist you.

You will never lose any lecture. You can choose either of the two options: 1. View the class presentation and recordings that are available for online viewing through the LMS. 2.
