Summary:
Data Science is currently the hottest topic among data analysts and technologists, but getting started can sometimes be daunting or confusing to many data professionals. We aim to change that with this full-day, hands-on course in which you will be introduced to data science and its basic methodologies using the Python programing language!

Together we will work through some real-world data analyses using several of the most popular Python libraries, such as NumPy, pandas, and SciPy. We'll cover collecting and importing data, and introduce basic statistics around our data. We'll then move on to create some simple visualizations of our data to help us identify trends and patterns.


Intended Audience:
Data professionals (DBAs, developers, BI professionals) looking for an introduction to data science and/or an introduction to the use of Python in data analysis.


Course Objectives:
Attendees will learn how to:

  • Perform exploratory data analysis using Python.
  • Import data into Python from text files and databases.
  • Use Python libraries to scrub and transform data.
  • Create basic data visualizations.


Pre-Requisites:
No experience with Python is necessary. Basic knowledge of one of the major relational database platforms (SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, PostgresSQL, etc) and writing SQL queries is preferable.

Attendees should bring a laptop to follow along with the examples in class. The instructor will email registered attendees with setup details.
