Introduction to Data Analysis and Visualization: Home

 

This series of workshops is designed to help undergraduates learn python basics for data analysis, visualization, and create visualizations with Tableau. Developed from the Software Carpentry Curriculum, undergraduate Data Peers will lead workshops to introduce basic data manipulation and visualization with Python. The final workshop will focus on creating visualizations using Tableau. Each workshop is designed to act as a starting point for learning concepts and will familiarize attendees with additional resources for getting help.  All workshops will begin on Berkeley Time at 10 minutes past the hour. Unless you are already familiar with Python, these workshops are best taken a successive series
