Recommendations of learning Python to be a Data Analyst
#1
Hello,

I am new to Python and from a finance background and good at database query e.g. Oracle, MySQL

While I am not interested in a pure development role, but I would like to be a data analyst. There are many courses online but I don't know whether they are suitable to me since Python is huge. I have found three courses. Two are for beginners and one is teaching library (e.g. pandas) although I don't know what it means. I have listed the information in here.

Are there any experience people or any recommendations for me to start learning Python in order to be a data analyst?

Thanks,
Ricky

@Larz60+,

Thanks for your respond. I notice "http://interactivepython.org/courselib/s...index.html" is very very old. I am unsure if I should still devote the time to old stuff.

Thanks,
Ricky
