Description

About the Event:

This part 2 of a two-part series the following week! Please RSVP for both.

Data scientists need to know how to code, and Python is the most useful and versatile programming language for doing data science.

In this practical data science Meetup, you’ll learn foundational skills for adding Python to your data science and analytics toolbox. A professional instructor from GalvanizeU's Masters in Data Science will guide you through analyzing data in Python by writing scripts and taking advantage of handy libraries, such as Numpy and Pandas. You’ll leave this session equipped to write your own Python scripts to analyze data, and instructor recommendations about next steps to take on your pathway to data science.

Prerequisites:

This Meetup is for beginners and does not require prior programming experience. Participants who are familiar with concepts of data analysis and statistics will be better equipped to apply their skills after the conclusion of this Meetup. Please have anaconda installed on your computer and know how to run basic commands in an ipython notebook.

What to Bring:

Yourself! Your laptop, if you have it on you (not 100% required, so don't stress if you don't have one).

Light food will be provided

What You’ll Learn:

• Learn about different machine learning models such as KNN and Linear Regressions
• Feature importance and SHAP Values
