Training: Python Library Series

This course series is for people who have some experience coding in Python and would like to expand their capabilities to include popular libraries: Pandas, ElementTree, NLTK, NetworkX, and Altair. 

The series offers three, two-week courses that may be taken individually or in any combination. 

Course 1: Analysing Structured Data with Pandas and ElementTree. This course will cover how to analyse structured data (i.e. CSV, XML). 

Course 2: Text Analysis with NLTK. This course will cover how to analyse unstructured data (i.e. text).  

Course 3: Visualisation with NetworkX and Altair. This course will introduce network analysis and data visualisation. 

The courses will have four, one-hour, virtual tutorials on Mondays and Fridays.  Participants will receive an assignment in each Monday tutorial that the instructor will review in that week’s Friday tutorial.  Participants will complete assignments in Jupyter Notebooks.  The instructor will provide learning material from freely available, online, resources.  Each week, participants are expected to dedicate about seven hours to the tutorials, assignment, and learning material. 

The instructor will provide virtual office hours during all courses (a minimum of one hour per course; the instructor will confirm the hours available to book after registration ends).

This course will be hosted on Teams.
