Takeaways

In this workshop 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/).
