Python Workshop II: Pandas for data analysis(no python basic)

This is a enhanced session of Aug 26th "Python Workshop I: Pandas for data analysis(with python basic)". You can find useful information from comments at previous event.
http://www.meetup.com/NYC-Open-Data/events/128896482/

Many Thanks to On Deck Capital for hosting us and John Downs for sharing his experience with Pandas.

------------------------------------------------------
Speaker Bio:

John Downs is a software engineer at On Deck. He has been programming in Python for several years. John also has interests in Machine Learning and Data Mining.

Preparation:

Bring your favorite editor and python shell. Install pandas with 'pip install pandas'.

Agenda:

7-8: We'll dive into using Pandas to do some analysis and visualization directly.
8-9: We'll break into groups to give everyone a chance to apply the material from the talk.

    Hey! I know it's very very very late, but here is the notebook from this talk:

    Hi attendants, I felt bad for the fact that a few of you left early. Could you be kindly share your reason? Thanks!

      The reason that I left early is obvious: the talk was too advanced for my rudimentary Python skills.

      My plan was to expose myself to a professional caliber program in hopes that it would be within striking distance of my rudimentary skills, and I would thereby be lifted up; such strategy was wrong ... "the best laid plans of mice and men" ...

      I did indeed derive one benefit: I now know that there's alot more to Python than the elementary sites - Udacity, eg - would have the tyro believe.

      If you can recommend a more advanced online learning site, one that will raise my skills closer to what is required by a professional program, then please apprise me of such

      You may want to jump in on this course https://www.edx.org/co...­. It's only in wk 2. Starts at the beginning but gets complex quickly.

    John: Any chance you could post a link to the notebook and/or Python code from the talk?

    September 18, 2013

  • Xu F.

    Wish that the code was shared online during the tutorial. I find it easier to follow that way, just like other R intro workshops.

    Vivian, John:

    You know that I wasn't happy with the first Pandas talk, which turned out to be most entirely an introduction to Python. For your next talk(s), I would like to see the following items:
    - no Python; those who know nothing about Python belong in a different meetup before attending this one (and nothing can stop you from presenting such a Python-intro meetup just before it, if you think there is sufficient demand)
    - code to download a file
    - code to open a local file in comma-delimited, tab-delimited, JSON, Excel and SPSS formats
    - code to save a file locally in the above formats, where available
    - a short discussion of NumPy arrays and how to create them from Python objects, with iterators, and with random number generators
    - basic Pandas types: Series, TimeSeries, DataFrame, Panel; underlying Pandas/NumPy element types for int, float, string, datetime; handling of missing values
    - various methods of selecting subsets of rows and/or columns

    (continued)

      I second the 'no python intro' rule. With only 2 hours, focus should be on learning pandas, not python.

      I agree as well, focus should be on learning pandas

    Unable to make it tonight, will there be another one.

    I am currently wait listed for the first session, so if I make it to that one I can free up my slot for another person to this event.
