Data Manipulation with Python
This workshop teaching basic data manipulations with Python using the Pandas library, and will cover topics such as loading data into a Pandas DataFrame, performing basic cleaning and analysis, and visualizing relevant aspects of a dataset. To learn these skills concretely, we will work with a dataset of tweets collected during the release of the Apple Watch.
Prerequisites: You should be familiar with basic Python syntax and fundamental programming concepts such as variables, functions, and control flow. If you need a refresher, check out A Byte of Python
