Data scientists need to know how to code, and Python is the most useful and versatile programming language for doing data science. In this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn foundational skills for adding Python to your data science toolbox.
Professional instructors will guide you through analyzing data in Python by writing scripts and taking advantage of handy libraries. You’ll leave this session equipped to write your own Python scripts to analyze data, and instructor recommendations about next steps to take on your pathway to data science.
Note: Maximum Attendance 40 – Due to space constraints and preserving the quality of education, we will plan to accept only 40 people into this class.
What to Bring
Your laptop and charger (for note taking or to run some code as we walk through the libraries)
Please have the following installed:
