Course Analytics - Wrangling FutureLearn Data With Python and R

About the Book

Writing your own reports and building your own dashboards from scratch takes time but this handy recipe book contains a handy selection of code fragments and functions for creating your own reports and interactive dashboards.

Using Jupyter notebooks and RStudio, this book shows you how to get started creating your own data analysis and reporting toolkit with just a few lines of code using Python or R.

The recipes include all you need to get started, even without programming experience. But if you do feel as if you need some programming practice first, why not sign up for the [Learn to Code for Data Analysis]( FutureLearn course, which introduces you to the Python package and many of the Python programming techniques used in this book.
