This is a hands-on workshop designed to get you started analyzing data using Python and Jupyter Notebooks. We will provide a whirlwind overview of what Python is (and isn't) and why you might want to use it to look at your data. Then we'll dive into some programming basics and discuss:
- What are variables and how do I use them?
- What other data structures are available?
- Essential Python packages for data analysis (NumPy, Matplotlib, Pandas, and more) and how to import them
- The basics of visualization with Matplotlib
- How do I import my data?
No previous programming experience is required for this workshop, and computers will be provided at the Mark Lab.
