You can still access the UC Berkeley Library’s services and resources during the closure. Here’s how.

Introduction to Data Analysis with Python: Home

This series of workshops is designed to help undergraduates in the College of Engineering with little to no experience with the python programming language get started with python for data analysis, visualization, and interoperability with MatLab. Developed from the Software Carpentry Curriculum, undergraduate Data Peers will lead workshops to introduce basic data manipulation with python and creating visualizations with python. The final workshop, Integrating MatLab and Simulink with Python, will be led by a MatLab engineer. Each workshop is designed to act as a starting point for learning concepts and will familiarize attendees with additional resources for getting help.

TBD 

MATLAB® provides flexible, two-way integration with many programming languages, including Python. This allows different teams to work together and use MATLAB algorithms within production software and IT systems. The workshop will cover how to call MATLAB from Python and how to call Python libraries from MATLAB. This is the final workshop in the “Introduction to Data Analysis with Python for Engineers.”
