Post Masterclass Review
"Great walkthrough for the homework assignment and leaving us plenty of options to explore the material more in-depth by ourselves."
"It covered a wide range of the basics of Python and provided relevant examples to explain. The overall presentation and contents are easy to understand and easy to pick up.
Looking forward to more complex and flexible usage of Python in data analysis."
