Event Details

This workshop is designed to introduce participants to Python programming language using data wrangling as a running example. Participants will learn a fair amount of Python and several useful Python libraries. The workshop is split into five modules and each module focuses on particular aspects of Python and its applications. There will also be hands-on projects to help solidify the concepts taught in each module.


Key Takeaways

After completing the workshop, participants will:

- Be comfortable using Python for everyday tasks

- Have enough understanding of Python to further master the language on their own

- Understand what is possible using Python and libraries thereof

- Be able to program simple database applications using Python

- Know how to fetch data from a variety of sources and turn it into a useful form

- Serves as a prerequisite to learning more advanced Python workshops (eg web development in Django)
