About This Workshop


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


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
