Abstract

This half-day course (4h) gives you an introduction to the tools available to wrangle and to tidy your data in Python, using the pandas library.
It is important to become familiar with the data tidying process and all of the tools available to make your data more suitable for analysis. This course provides a basic introduction to wrangling and tidying data in Python using ‘pandas’, which is a fast, powerful, flexible and easy to use open source data analysis and manipulation tool.
In the final part, you will put into practice what you've learned during the course to be able to import and to clean your own messy dataset. If you don’t have your own messy database, an example of messy dataset will be provided for you to practice.

Course overview:
• Start with raw data;
• Data wrangling;
• Data tidying process;
• Practical session & cleaning your own (or provided) messy database.

The course does not cover statistics, data mining, machine learning techniques or big data.
The aim is to provide researchers with the tools necessary to efficiently wrangling and tidying data with Python.


Prerequisites

This course is NOT an introductory courses to Python. This means that you MUST already know how to code in Python.
