Workshop on Data Management in Python — Feb. 10-12 at Rackham

By February 4, 2015Educational, Events

CSCAR will offer a workshop on data management in Python on February 10, 11, and 12 from 4-6 p.m. each day, in the Rackham common room (Rackham Building lower level west).

The workshop will focus on using core Python, numpy, and Pandas to manage and process data sets. Participants will learn how to read and clean data sets, generate reports, produce graphical summaries, and perform simple statistical analyses.

This workshop will have a lecture/discussion format and is not held in a computer lab. Participants may bring their own laptops if they wish but this is not required. All software discussed in the workshop is free and open source, and runs on all major platforms. Follow-up consulting for UM researchers using Python in their research is available from CSCAR.

There is no registration for this workshop, and there is no charge to attend. Participants should plan to attend all three sessions.
