This is a half day course.

Prerequisites

No prior knowledge by the participants is necessary to participate in this course and it is intended for all scientific audiences. Participants are required to bring their own laptops to work on during the course. Network access (e.g. through Eduroam) is recommended.

Summary

Jupyter notebooks are a great tool for exploring and interacting with data using the Python programming language and its rich ecosystem of libraries. In this course we will cover basic usage of the Pandas library to download a dataset, explore its contents, clean up missing or invalid data, filter the data according to different criteria, and plot visualizations of the data.
