In collaboration with BCSWomen and Bayes Centre we are offering this hands on workshop which introduces Pandas, one of the main Python libraries for manipulating and analysing structured data and one of the first things to learn if you want to get started with data science.

This workshop is an introduction to Pandas for beginners where you will learn about:

  • Jupyter notebooks
  • Pandas data structures
  • Transforming and exploring data
  • Visualising data

After an introduction to each of the subjects there will be some exercises to practice what you have learned.

Nice to have is some knowledge of Python, but you should be able to follow along without as well.

Please bring a laptop as this is a hands-on workshop. We will use IBM Watson Studio to go through the exercises, so there is no need to install anything beforehand.

This event is brought to you by: BCSWomen in Scotland and IBM Code Scotland
