Introduction to Python for Data Analysis
This course offers an introduction to Jupyter and Pycharm, particularly:
- When and how to use them
- The basic commands
- How to structure code in Python
- How to import packages and how to use them
- A practical example of importing, manipulating and visualizing data
This course requires a laptop with Python and Anaconda installed; all are open source programs. We are happy to help with the installation upon request.
I believe that Python is a very versatile programming language for data analysis. I have been using Python at many occasions, be it academic or not, in particular at the DOV summer school, for my Bachelor thesis and for my personal research into trading strategies.
