  • Date/Time: Saturday, Jun. 15 at 9:00am
  • Location: River Oaks A

Skill level: Advanced

Learn how to use Jupyter notebooks with the popular Python library pandas to kickstart your data analysis workflow. In this session, you'll write code to quickly sort, filter, group, clean and join large data sets -- all within a browser-based notebook that doubles as your data diary.

Preregistration is required and seating is limited. Laptops will be provided for the training.

Workshop prerequisites: This is programming for beginners. Some familiarity with basic Python syntax is helpful -- you might first check out the Python 101 session offered separately -- but not required.
