Business Statistics Course for Python Programmers

Data Science jobs using Python Data Stack (Pandas, NumPy, Matplotlib, Seaborn, scikit-learn Machine Learning, SciPy, Statsmodels, Keras, Theano, TensorFlow, etc.) have increased considerably in the job market today. To do Data Science using Python Data Stack you’ll need to understand both Python programming language and Business Statistics.

Statistics ( is a branch of mathematics dealing with the collection, analysis, interpretation, presentation, and organization of data. In applying statistics to, e.g., a scientific, industrial, or social problem, it is conventional to begin with a statistical population or a statistical model process to be studied. Populations can be diverse topics such as “all people living in a country” or “every atom composing a crystal”. Statistics deals with all aspects of data including the planning of data collection in terms of the design of surveys and experiments.

Business Statistics ( is the science of good decision making in the face of uncertainty and is used in many disciplines such as financial analysis, econometrics, auditing, production and operations including services improvement, and marketing research.

15 IT Resource has prepared a unique high-level Business Statistics course using pure Python programming language. This course was designed specific for Python programmers to quick learn Business Statistics for company Data Science needs.

Ernest Bonat, Ph.D. Short Bio

I was born and raised in Havana, Cuba. When I was 19 years old the Cuban Government sent me to study to Kiev, Ukraine for 9 years. I have finished the following degrees at National Technical University of Ukraine: BS, MS in Electrical Engineering and Ph.D. in Computer Sciences and Engineering. Came to Portland, OR USA on Aug/1996.

My educational certifications and degrees includes: Certified Online Instructor from Argosy University Online, Certified Online Instructor from Concordia University, Certified Online Instructor, University of Phoenix; Ph.D. Equivalent Certificate in Computer Sciences and Engineering from University of Phoenix, Ph.D. Equivalent Certificate in Computer Sciences and Engineering from University of Toronto, Ph.D. Equivalent Certificate in Computer Sciences and Engineering from Superior Polytechnic Institute of Havana, Ph.D. in Computer Sciences and Engineering, B.S. and M.S. in Electrical Engineering from National Technical University of Ukraine and Instructor of Russian Language.

From 2001, I have taught many Information Technologies and Business Statistics courses (onground and online) for University of Phoenix, Portland Community College and Mount Hood Community College, Oregon, USA. I have provided Microsoft enterprise application development training for companies like Hewlett-Packard, Medford School District, Doncasters Medical Technologies, Kroger-Fred Meyer and Manpower Inc. of Southern Nevada. Currently I teach online Python Programming Language for University of the People and Lead Instructor for Business Statistics courses at Concordia University – Portland.

My Scientific-Technical background includes: 5 Practical Methods of Teaching Laboratory and Researching, 5 User Manuals of Computer Interactive Programs, 44 Scientific-Technical Articles, 2 Technical Books, 17 Articles on Visual Basic Windows Programming and GUI Guides Design, 5 Articles on MySQL/VB.NET Windows Applications Programming, 17 Scientific-Technical Conferences and Seminars, 3 Tutored Ph.D. Thesis, 1 Tutored M.S. Thesis and 2 Tutored Microelectronic Thesis Specialists.

I started my professional computer programming career in 1993 developing database business application using Microsoft Visual Basic 3.0, Windows 3.11 and Access 2.0. I have 23 years of experience designing, developing, testing and deployment of database business application using the following programming languages, database engines and technologies: C, C++, VB 6.0, Visio, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, XML, JSON, Python, PHP, Java EE, VBScript, VBA, VB.NET, C#.NET, ASP.NET, .NET Entity Framework, Windows and Web Services, Data Analytics and Intelligence Report Generation, SQL 99, SQL:2003, T-SQL, PL/SQL, Access, SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Visual Studio .NET, Eclipse and NetBeans IDE, etc.

In the last four years I have been specialized in the following technologies: WCF SOAP and RESTful API Web Services using ASP.NET/C#, Web Services using Python Flask Microframework; Mobile applications development using Xamarin Platform and Visual Studio .NET for Android, iOS and Windows Phone devices; Data Analytics and Intelligence Report Generation using Python, Eclipse IDE, PyDev Plug-in, PyUnit with Python Data Stack (Pandas, NumPy, SciPy, Statsmodels, Keras, Theano, Matplotlib, scikit-learn Machine Learning, Seaborn, ReportLab, etc.).

I’m the organizer/presenter of the Hillsboro Python Machine Learning Meetup. This group was created for pure Machine Learning using Python Ecosystem for Data Science. I’m the designer and Instructor of the Python Data Science Bootcamp for PDX Code Guild.

I speak Spanish, Russian, Ukraine and English. I’m working for 15 IT Resources company as a consulting Senior Software Engineer and Senior Data Scientist now.
