Anyone interested in developing their programming skills to enhance their research ability perfect for any Market Researcher looking to upgrade their research skills. You could be a beginner in programming or already a Python programmer. There is a lot to take away from both. It is also required for those wanting to take up the follow-up course.

What is the level of learning?  

While no prior learning is required, a desire to learn to program and put in the work to complete the exercises will be very important. Exposure to working in excel & writing equations/formulas in it will be helpful. Simple, high school-level mathematics will be used in exercises and programming tasks.

There will be pre-course work material that will be made available to help ease into the course.

A lot of information. Jag showed a lot of opportunities how one can use Python. Nice instructor - Prep material was very helpful and possibility to ask questions. Provided all scripts, datasets and even the recording of the sessions.
