Abstract

In this course we start with an introduction to the programming language Python. Python is a general-purpose programming language, but it has recently become very popular for data science applications. This is a hands-on course with practical assignments. Besides the basics of Python, you'll learn how to import and manipulate data, construct descriptive statistics and plots, and
perform basic analysis.

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


Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites, but previous knowledge about basic statistical principles (like hypotheses testing and linear regression) is recommended.

We will use the Anaconda Navigator, containing the Jupyter notebook (course notes) and Spyder program. This can be downloaded here: https://www.anaconda.com/download/
(More info on installing on different operating systems can be found here: https://docs.anaconda.com/anaconda/install/ )

Python version 3 or higher is recommended.
