    Hands-On Data Analysis with Python

    Python is quickly becoming the go-to language for data analysis. However, there are so many tools out there that it can be difficult to figure out which ones are useful. In this workshop, I’ll give you an in-depth look at some of the best tools for data wrangling, machine learning, and data visualization. You’ll learn strategies for working with data, how to structure a data analysis workflow, and which tools are appropriate for handling different kinds of data. You’ll leave with a good understanding of different data analysis techniques in Python.

    Using Pandas, Scikit-Learn, and matplotlib, we’ll work through a data analysis workflow from start to finish, and we’ll cover the following data analysis problems:

    • Data preprocessing and data wrangling with Pandas

    • Using Scikit-Learn for machine learning

    • Visualizing our results with matplotlib

    Required materials

    Pandas, Scikit-Learn, and matplotlib are the tools we’ll be working with in Python. They can easily be installed with a distribution (such as Anaconda). Please have them installed prior to the tutorial. I’ll post all of the tutorial materials to my Github account, so having a Github account would be helpful.

    This meetup has been cancelled because I'm very sick today. :( I'm sorry, everyone. We'll definitely be having it in the future, at a larger venue.

    Sarah - Hope you feel better and recover completely in time for OSCON! I suggest also sending out an email to the attendees.

    • Sarah G.

      Thanks, Ritesh! I think the email just went out.

    Hey, really excited to hear this talk. Is the full talk going to be 2 - 5 PM or is that just to include the time we have at Fueled's office space?

    All the required software is available for both Python 2 and 3; do you have a preference as to which we install?

    I can't make it, but this is extremely interesting; will there be video from this talk or the one at OSCON?

    • Sarah G.

      This talk isn't going to be recorded. I think all of the OSCON talks will be, but I'm not sure that they're free.

      I can no longer go! =(. Sounds very interesting though. I'll definitely keep my eye out for a recorded version of your talk at OSCON!

    Looks like a really good worshop. Since I run a community garden on Saturdays during the growing season, I'll miss this one (unless it rains).
