What you'll learn in this python class:

Python is one of the most popular programming languages for data science. In this bootcamp, we will learn the fundamentals of programing using python so that users will feel comfortable manipulating tabular data (numbers, text) on their own problems. Topics include data types, data structures, boolean relationships, looping and functions. Students will work independently or in groups on these core topics as well as coding challenges that aims to bring all the topics together. 

In addition to programming fundamentals, Python will be contextualized in the greater Data Science/Analytics world, where students will work through a real data set, by plotting the data, and using linear regression to analyze their results.

  • How run python scripts in the Jupyter Notebook ecosystem
  • basic data types of python
  • basic data structures of python
  • boolean relationships in python
  • using loops and functions in python to do repeatable tasks 
  • Python’s place in the data science workflow, and why it might be better than other tools like excel
Finally, students will leave with a clear pathway forward to continue python learning, either through self learning or direction towards other courses.
