This workshop will be hosted online due to safety considerations, please check out the "Preparation" section on the bottom of this page. Registered participants will be notified in advance of this program with information on how to log in to the event.

Python is a versatile and widely-used programming language with many applications. This workshop explores Python's place in the scientific ecosystem, and how the language, with several readily-available open-source libraries, can serve as a powerful tool for data analysis. Designed as a stand-alone introduction to the data science aspects of Python, this class is also a recommended preparatory workshop for students planning to enroll in General Assembly's Data Science course.

By the end of the workshop, students will be able to:

  • Use pandas to perform data analysis
  • Use matplotlib to make visualizations of the data
  • Sci-kit learn to generate a statistical model of the data

Takeaways

  • Ability to use Python for basic data analysis tasks (data cleaning and reformatting, exploration, analysis)
  • Understanding of Python’s role as a tool in the backend and analysis toolkits
  • Understanding of the possibilities opened up through a better understanding of Python
  • Greater preparedness for GA's Data Science course
