It is often said that 80% of data analysis is spent on the process of cleaning and preparing the data. This workshop will introduce tools (notably dplyr and tidyr) that makes data wrangling and manipulation much easier. Participants will learn how to use these packages to subset and reshape data sets, do calculations across groups of data, clean data, and other useful stuff.

Pandas is a Python package providing fast, flexible, and expressive data structures designed to make working with 'relational' or 'labeled' data both easy and intuitive. It enables doing practical, real world data analysis in Python.

In this workshop, we'll work with example data and go through the various steps you might need to prepare data for analysis.

We plan to cover:

This two-part series will focus on how to set up database-like structures, navigate them, create models and build various types of reports in Microsoft Excel. By the end of this series, participants will be able to sort and look for information within large datasets, use character-based functions, pivot tables, and build basic financial models.

Machine learning often evokes images of Skynet, self-driving cars, and computerized homes. However, these ideas are less science fiction as they are tangible phenomena that are predicated on description, classification, prediction, and pattern recognition in data.

For this workshop, we'll provide an introduction to visualization with Python. We'll cover visualization theory and plotting with Matplotlib and Seaborn, working through examples in a Jupyter (formerly IPython) notebook. The following plot types will be covered:

  • line
  • bar
  • scatter
  • boxplot

We'll also learn about styles and customizing plots.
