The Python & Data workshop series will introduce participants 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.

Workshop Topics:

-- Using Google Colab and Jupyter to work with Python

-- Python syntax, commands, functions, and packages/modules

-- Opening, viewing, and exploring data

-- Generating basic descriptive statistics from data

Prerequisites: None.

Software Requirements:

-- Participants will need a Google / Gmail account in order to access Google Colab

-- No software installation is required.

NOTE: Please read our Workshops ~ Etiquette & Policies page for pertinent information to your workshop attendance.
