Python Study Group will explore the Pandas (short for panel data) library. Pandas aims to close the gap in the richness of data analysis tools in Python and the numerous domain-specific statistical computing platforms and database languages. We'll study chapter 4 of Jake VanderPlas' Python Data Science Handbook on our own time, then challenge each other with exercises during twice-weekly one-hour meetings. Python Study Group will meet Dec 4, 6, 11, 13, 18, 20 from 11am to 12pm. Study group meetings will be held via WebEx, though participants can meet other group members in person in Bar Harbor and Farmington.
Prerequisite: Plotting & Programming in Python, or Python competence gained otherwise.
