Understand basic programming concepts common to all languages, and implement them into Python
Be aware of Vortexa API datasets and become familiar with using the Python SDK to access real-time data
Work with examples of obtaining, manipulating, and visualising data using Vortexa's Python SDK and more
Students are introduced to the core fundamentals of programming in Python: sequencing, selection, iteration, data structures and functions. Learn how to use NumPy and Pandas modules to store, manipulate, and extract insights from data.
Students learn to pull data from the Vortexa API, with examples of manipulating and plotting cargo movements data. Gain a firm grounding in using the Geographies, Products and Vessels endpoints.
Build further SDK skills, while exploring the functionality of the Cargo Movements endpoint using filtered queries. Modules will introduce the Cargo Time Series endpoint for aggregated flows data with new techniques for manipulating and visualising data.
Apply all the techniques developed in previous lessons to examples of higher-level data analysis with hypothesis testing and predictive modelling.
