PYTHON FOR DATA ANALYSIS
Python is a versatile and widely-used programming language with many applications. This workshop explores Python's place in the scientific ecosystem, and how the language, with several readily-available open-source libraries, can serve as a powerful tool for data analysis. Designed as a stand-alone introduction to the data science aspects of Python, this class is also a recommended refresher for students planning to enroll in General Assembly's upcoming Data Science course.
APPLIED STATISTICS (IN PYTHON) FOR DATA SCIENCE
The goal of this two-day workshop is to help participants learn fundamental concepts in Applied Statistics that can be used in Data Science related projects.
This workshop will help participants gain a statistical thinking mindset and intuition in order to build predictive models (in Python) that can help answer important industry related questions and make recommendations.
By developing a statistical thinking approach, participants will be able to define and create optimal operational and marketing strategies based on advanced analysis and data mining techniques. By the end of this advanced workshop, each participant will have cultivated their own Statistical thinking approach and have increased their familiarity with various modeling techniques.
