About This Workshop Series

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 refresher for students planning to enrol in General Assembly's upcoming Data Science course. This workshop is hands-on and exercise based, so students will get plenty of practice.

Students must bring a laptop with Anaconda pre-installed. Make sure you select to download Python 3.5 or 3.6 Graphical Installer (not Python 2.7).
