About this workshop

Whether you have experience in programming or are looking to get started for the first time, this workshop will put you on the fast track to honing your python and data analysis skills. In this bootcamp you’ll get hands-on programming experience in Python that you'll be able to immediately apply in the real world. The workshop will cover the fundamentals of Python and several tools used in data science.

This workshop is for analysts, product managers, mathematicians, business managers or anyone else that wants to learn how to code in Python.

Takeaways

In this bootcamp, you'll learn the end-to-end data science process:

  • Collect data from a variety of sources (e.g., Excel, web-scraping, APIs and others)
  • Explore large data sets
  • Clean and "munge" the data to prepare it for analysis
  • Apply machine learning algorithms to gain insight from the data
  • Visualize the results of your analysis

This is a very practical and hands-on workshop that has lots of class exercises. You'll build your own library of Python scripts that can be reused after your done with the course.

Prereqs & Preparation

You must bring a laptop with a text editor.

Sublime Text is recommended and has a free trial version (http://www.sublimetext.com/).

In addition, students should install Anaconda, which is a free package that includes python and a number of tools that will be used in class (http://continuum.io/downloads).
