Workshop: [SOLD OUT] Data Analytics, Pandas / Numpy / Scikit-Learn




9:00am - 4:00pm


  • Experience and background in software development in Python.
  • Helpful to have some background in analytics or machine learning.
  • Amazon EC2 servers will be provided students for installation, administration and lab work.
  • Students would need a SSH client and a browser to access the cluster.

Python has become a powerful language and environment for performing data science. It combines a robust, object-oriented language with a powerful library of data science packages, such as numpy, scipy, matlibplot, scikit-learn, and pandas. These tools together make python one of the best combinations of robust programming language together with great library support.

What You Will Get Exposed To:

  • Quick Python primer
  • Quick primer on data science algorithms
  • NumPy
  • SciPy
  • Pandas
  • Scikit-learn
