We also will offer recorded versions of the workshops to enable those not able to attend the live version to instead watch the recorded version at their convenience. As the recordings become available, we will post them here:
At the end of the recorded workshop, we will provide the check-in form link for attendance purposes.
The Python & Data workshop series will introduce users to the fundamentals of using the Python programming language and associated tools for the purposes of performing common data analysis tasks. Python is an extremely popular programming language used by analysts, researchers, and scientists in many different disciplines.
This series consists of three workshops. For individuals who are new to Python, coding, or data analysis, it is highly recommended that the workshops be attended in sequential order. Additionally, while these workshops are taught exclusively using code (i.e. there are no point-and-click methods), attendees do not need to have any prior experience with programming, coding, or scripting. All are welcome.
- Using Anaconda and Jupyter to work with Python
- Python syntax, commands, functions, and packages/modules
- Opening, viewing, and exploring data
- Generating basic descriptive statistics from data
- For users wishing to follow along with the “hands-on” portion of the workshop, you will need to download and install Anaconda using Python 3.7.
- For all other users, everyone is welcome to watch the workshop presentation and participate in the chat without installing any software.
NOTE: Please read our Workshops ~ Etiquette & Policies page for pertinent information to your workshop attendance.
