You most probably will know by now that data storytelling, accomplished by data visualization, amongst other things, is an essential skill for every data scientist: after you have turned the raw data into understanding, insights and knowledge, you also need to communicate these findings effectively to your audience.
For most beginners, the first Python data visualization library that they use is, naturally, Matplotlib. It is a Python 2D plotting library that enables users to make publication-quality figures. It is quite an extensive library where a cheat sheet will definitely come in handy when you're learning, but when you manage to use this library effectively, you'll also be able to get insights and work better with other packages, such as Pandas, that intend to build more plotting integration with Matplotlib as time goes on.
Another package that you'll be able to tackle easily is Seaborn, the statistical data visualization library of Python.
DataCamp has created a Seaborn cheat sheet for those who are ready to get started with this data visualization library with the help of a handy one-page reference.
You'll see that this cheat sheet presents you with the five basic steps that you can go through to make beautiful statistical graphs in Python.

This cheat sheet will walk you through the five steps that you need to go through to make these plots: you'll see how you can load in data, set the figure aesthetics, plot, customize and eventually, show or save your plot with Seaborn.
What might have looked difficult before will definitely be more clear once you start using this cheat sheet! Use it in combination with the Seaborn Gallery, the documentation, and our Seaborn tutorial.
