BASIC PYTHON FOR DATA SCIENCE

About the workshop

Python is a general-purpose programming language that is becoming more and more popular for doing data science. Professional trainers will teach you how to use python effectively. This workshop explores Python's place in the scientific ecosystem, and how the language, with several readily available open-source libraries, can serve as powerful tool for data analysis.
