About this course
We live in an era of unprecedented access to data. Understanding how to organize and leverage the vast amounts of information at our disposal are critical skills that allow us to infer upon the world and make informed decisions. This course will introduce you to such skills. To work with large amounts of data, you will need to harness the power of computation through programming. This course teaches you basic programming skills for manipulating data. You will learn how to use Python to organize and manipulate data in tables, and to visualize data effectively. No prior experience with programming or Python is needed, nor is any statistics background necessary. The examples given in the course involve real-world data from diverse settings. Not all data is numerical – you will work with different types of data from a variety of domains. Though the term “data science” is relatively new, the fundamental ideas of data science are not. The course includes powerful examples that span the centuries from the Victorian era to the present day. This course emphasizes learning through doing: you will work on large real-world data sets through interactive assignments to apply the skills you learn. Throughout, the underlying thread is that data science is a way of thinking, not just an assortment of methods. You will also hone your interpretation and communication skills, which are essential skills...

HP Certified Software Testing
KBuffer has signed up with HP Software University as an Authorized Training Center.
Software testing is a process used to identify the accuracy, completeness, and quality of software. Testing helps to verify and validate if the software is functioning as stated in the specification without any error. Static and Dynamic methodologies are used to test the application. Software Testing should systematically uncover different classes of errors in less time and effort. The data collected through testing can also provide an indication of the software's reliability and quality.
So, what is Software Testing?
According to Wikipedia, Software testing is an investigation conducted to provide stakeholders with information about the quality of the product or service under test. Software testing can also provide an objective, independent view of the software to allow the business to appreciate and understand the risks of software implementation. Test techniques include, but are not limited to, the process of executing a program or application with the intent of finding software bugs (errors or other defects). KBuffer is one of the leading of training institute authorized by HP. HP is one of the largest companies across the world and continues to move up the ladder by offering more leading software solutions to run, manage, optimize, and secure customers' enterprise applications and data centers. The HP Software Certification programs prepare students to meet today's increasing challenges with the technical skills required to put you ahead in the Software Testing vertical.
