TSCC Training Series: Introduction to Python for Data Scientists

Thursday, May 16, 2019

This event will be held remotely.

The Python programming language provides an ideal platform for anyone who needs to work with data. The language itself is intuitive and flexible, but the full power of the Python ecosystem derives from the wide variety of packages available for doing everything from machine learning to data visualization. Using Jupyter Notebooks, we will start by introducing the basics of the language. We’ll then briefly touch on popular packages used for plotting (Matplotlib), data manipulation and analysis (pandas), numeric computing (NumPy) and machine learning (scikit-learn). Since the breadth of topics spans much more than we can fully covers in two hours, all materials are made available on GitHub so that attendees can continue learning on their own (https://github.com/sinkovit/PythonSeries).
