DSDC is pleased to work with DC Python (http://meetup.dcpython.org) to put together this free workshop! To participate, go to the DC Python web page (http://meetup.dcpython.org), join the group if you haven't previously, and RSVP for the event (http://meetup.dcpython.org/events/81931062/) there.
Join Matt Davis (bio (http://penandpants.com/about/)) as he leads this much awaited workshop titled, "Number Crunching in Python with NumPy". Basic familiarity with Python is expected as Matt teaches us how to be effective data manipulators using the excellent NumPy (http://numpy.scipy.org/) library. In addition to NumPy, Matt will also cover related tools/libraries such as IPython (http://ipython.org/), SciPy (http://www.scipy.org), matplotlib (http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/), and Pandas (http://pandas.pydata.org).
The Computer Science department at GWU has graciously agreed to make an instructional classroom available for this workshop. The room has limited capacity so please RSVP early to reserve your spot. If your plans change, please update your reply for the benefit of everyone on the waiting list.
DC Python (http://meetup.dcpython.org/) and Data Science DC meetup groups have teamed up to make this workshop possible. It will be an all-volunteer run event and there is no sign-up fee but we strongly urge $10 cash donations at the door to cover the cost of pizza and drinks.
