Welcome to the wonderful world of Data Analysis in Python! In this chapter, you'll learn the basics of Python syntax, load your first Python modules, and use functions to get a suspect list for the kidnapping of Bayes, DataCamp's prize-winning Golden Retriever.
In this chapter, you'll learn a powerful Python libary: pandas. pandas lets you read, modify, and search tabular datasets (like spreadsheets and database tables). You'll examine credit card records for the suspects and see if any of them made suspicious purchases.
Get ready to visualize your data! You'll create line plots with another Python module: Matplotlib. Using line plots, you'll analyze the letter frequencies from the ransom note and several handwriting samples to determine the kidnapper.
In this final chapter, you'll learn how to create three new plot types: scatter plots, bar plots, and histograms. You'll use these tools to locate where the kidnapper is hiding and rescue Bayes, the Golden Retriever.
