  • 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.

To prepare for the upcoming workshop, please follow the steps below to download the programs and we’ll teach you the rest! (There's no need to do this if you have already attended a DSI workshop and have done it.)


STEP ONE IF NOT ALREADY DONE:
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)

1)Use this link:
https://www.continuum.io/downloads


STEP TWO IF NOT ALREADY DONE
Use this link: 
https://github.com/dsiufl/Python-Workshops

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



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.

The workshop that we will be using is: "DataSciUF Python I.ipynb."
