What you'll learn in this python class:

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
  • Have a working understanding of the statistical models being used
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
Prereqs & Preparation
  • Students must have taken Python Programming 101 or have equivalent foundational knowledge. Note, we will NOT be going through introductory Python. Here is an example exercise you should be able to do before taking this class: Write a function that prints all of the numbers between 1 and 10,000 that are either divisible by 7 or 33 but not both.
  • Please install the software as soon as you sign up so that you do not run into technical installation problems at the last minute.
  • We will not be taking class time to trouble shoot installation issues, if you have any issues please email [email protected] no later than 24 hours before the class.
  • Please bring a laptop with Anaconda Python 2.7 installed.
  • Install Visual Studio Code
