The intended audience of this course is data scientists and other people involved in data analysis rather than career programmers. There will be some light discussion of good programming principles, but only as they pertain to good data science practices. The goal is to take participants from a low level of familiar with Python to performing simple data manipulations. At the end of the workshop, you should leave with a solid foundation to continue your own learning and experimenting with the language.
In preparation for the workshop please install the Anaconda distribution of Python 3.5. It can be found here:
This is the only version of Python that will be supported. If you are having trouble installing this version of Python, please contact data science services at firstname.lastname@example.org .
