Harness the power of Python for science

Training topics

Using Python for scientific and engineering tasks, data processing, visualization (short version)

The Python language is the scientist's and engineer's perfect companion - easy to use and extend, getting the job done with minimum hassle. Discover how to efficiently perform scientific and engineering computation to process data.

This condensed, highly hands-on course focuses on key tasks such as processing 1D and 2D numerical arrays with NumPy, data aggregation. We provide a brief overview of multi-dimensional data analysis with Pandas, as well as matplotlib visualization basics. Throughout the course we work with the web-powered IPython notebook interface.

 

Results
