How to Process, Analyze and Visualize Data

Another great course on MIT OpenCourseWare: How to process, analyze and visualize data. Through different examples, fundamental concepts of data analysis and visualisation are presented in a clear way. My favorite part deals with the analysis of text documents.

All the codes are written in python, and it assumes the reader has a working knowledge of the language plus the ability to install some development libraries. A basic understanding of statistics is also of great help.
