Best of Core Forum: Python for Data Visualization
Description: Python is a powerful, open-source, and popular programming language with a wide variety of applications in and out of libraries. Whether you’re presenting usage information or data from your own research, Python can help transform your data from numbers into data visualizations, such as graphs, that can be shared with coworkers, administration, and publishers. Unlike software such as Excel, Python script can be shared and reused once written, providing you with the ability to add transparency and reproducibility to your processes and research. In this workshop, we’ll cover everything you need to know to create these data visualizations--no previous experience required!
This webinar was previously presented in-person as a session at the 2023
Core Forum. We are hosting this webinar, with the session adapted and
presented live as a virtual event, to extend its reach.
Learning Outcomes:At the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Describe the origin of Python;
- Use Python variables, functions, and other coding fundamentals; and
- Create data visualizations using Python.
interested in learning Python from scratch, reinforcing material learned
