PYTHON201: Data Manipulation in Python

Course duration: half day

Explore DataFrames in depth and learn about Data Manipulation in Python using the pandas library.

About this course

Python has deservedly become a popular language for scientific computing. It has all the friendly features and conveniences you’d expect of a modern programming language, and also a rich set of libraries for working with data.

In this workshop, you will explore DataFrames in depth (using the pandas library), learn how to manipulate, explore and get insights from your data (Data Manipulation), as well as how to deal with missing values and how to combine multiple datasets.

We teach using Jupyter notebooks, which allow program code, results, visualisations and documentation to be blended seamlessly. Perfect for sharing insights with others while producing reproducible research.

Join us for this live coding workshop where we write programs that produce results, using the researcher-focused training modules from the highly regarded Software Carpentry Foundation.
