Beginners Data Workshop
If you have zero programming experience, this workshop is made for you! If you already have some experience but are new to Python, we’ve got you covered too – the workshop is designed for attendees to progress through the materials at their own rate. You will be learning in small groups, each with an assigned mentor to guide you through the materials and answer your questions. This will all be facilitated online through the wonders of modern technology. You can expect plenty of exercises, quizzes and games, and inspiring talks from those who were once in your shoes.
This workshop is designed for absolute beginners with little-to-no coding experience. You will be introduced to programming in Python, with hands-on exercises for attendees to start doing data manipulation using pandas and data visualization using matplotlib. There are plenty of extension exercises that introduce concepts such as the basics of using Python for machine learning. We will be providing an online programming environment that we will teach you how to use, so all you need is a laptop, a modern browser such as Google Chrome and an internet connection!
We will be targeting those with little-to-no experience in using Python for data science, and especially those from underrepresented groups in technology. The workshop materials are open source and thus are freely available to all conference attend
