Python 1 w/ AIS

  • UF Informatics Institute (map)

Python 1 is structured as an introduction to data anaylsis with Python. In this workshop, you will learn how to upload .csv files, clean your data, and perform some basic analytics and visualization. This workshop will introduce you to the numpy and pandas python libraries, which are used for scientific computing and databases, resepctively. 

PLEASE follow the instructions listed below PRIOR to coming to the workshop:

Download and install Anaconda Python distribution for PYTHON 2. WE ARE USING PYTHON 2, NOT PYTHON 3. (this includes Jupyter, a Python interpreter that will allow you to run iPython notebooks) NOTE: you can use Python 3 but there are some syntax differences, so be familiar with these if you plan on using Python 3.

Use this link:

Download the iPython notebooks and files from GitHub. Just click “clone or download" in the top right-hand corner, and select "download zip"

Use this link:

Open up the Anaconda launcher, the Jupyter page will open in a web browser, and navigate to the location of the downloaded files. Through the Jupyter webpage, you will be able to run the iPython inotebook.

We will be using the UF DSI Python 1 student - update.ipynb notebook
