Seattle Data Science Workshop: Intro to Python for Data Science (11.22)

November 22 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

28877269691-25365642

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:

– Python 2.7 or 3.5
– Git (should be okay if you have a Mac)
– Anaconda for Jupyter Notebooks

What You’ll Learn

• How to view and analyze data sets with Python
• How to write and run Python scripts on your own laptop
• Which libraries and packages are most useful for analyzing data in Python
• Why Python is a flexible, versatile language for doing data science
• Which resources you should next utilize to develop your skills

Workshop Schedule

6:30 pm – Networking & Announcements
6:40 pm – Why Use Python for Data Science?
6:50 pm – Working with Python with various libraries and toolkits
