About this workshop

Python is a versatile and widely-used programming language with many applications. This web development program 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 advances in computer science and data analysis. Designed as a stand-alone introduction to the data science aspects of Python applications, this coding bootcamp is also a recommended refresher for participants planning to enroll in General Assembly's upcoming Data Science Immersive. The Python bootcamp is hands-on and exercise based, so participants will get plenty of practice and acquire the fundamental skills necessary to tackle complex projects as a future web developer, software engineer, coding dojo, digital marketing analyst, or even computer science entrepreneur.

Takeaways

  • Ability to write and run Python scripts.
  • Ability to use Python applications and frameworks 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 web development opportunities and machine learning possibilities made available through a better understanding of Python programming language

Prereqs & Preparation

  • General tech savvy, and comfort with computers
  • Some prior experience with use of computers for analysis or repetitive tasks – such as Excel
  • Installation of Anaconda for Python 3.7, which is a free distribution of python that includes libraries of open source Python programming python tools (http://continuum.io/downloads).
