Abstract

THIS IS AN INTRODUCTORY COURSE FOR BEGINNERS WITH NO OR VERY LITTLE PYTHON-PROGRAMMING EXPERIENCE.

This course is intended as an Introduction to the Python programming language. In five sessions, participants will build up the skills needed to import and manipulate data, construct descriptive statistics and plots, and perform basic analysis. The course includes:

- Introducing the Python Anaconda distribution
- Types, Variables and Data Structures
- Functions, including writing your own
- Importing and exporting data
- Data manipulation with Numpy and Pandas
- Graphics with Matplotlib and Seaborn
- Basic statistical data analysis with statsmodels (i.e. descriptive analysis, statistical tests to compare groups, and linear regression)

Python is free and for this course you need to install the Anaconda distribution from
https://www.anaconda.com/download/. It is recommended that you use Python version 3 or higher.


Prerequisites

IMPORTANT!!
No prior Python knowledge is required.

It is recommended that participants are familiar with some basic statistical concepts (like hypotheses testing and linear regression).

This course targets participants with little or no Python-programming experience who wish to start using Python for their data manipulation, data exploration or basic statistical analysis.
