January 12, 2022 | Catalysis DataX Data Scientist Jose Garrido Torres Wintersession Workshop: Data Visualization in Python

An introduction to effective data visualization in Python. Attendees will be exposed to several plotting packages in Python, along with how to integrate them with NumPy and Pandas. Other packages discussed include Matplotlib, Seaborn, and Plotly. Examples will include static and interactive 1D plots, 2D contour maps, heat maps, violin plots, and box plots.
Knowledge prerequisites: Participants should have reasonable facility with the Python programming language, including a basic familiarity with NumPy arrays and Pandas data frames. This session is not appropriate for those with no prior Python experience. However, no previous experience with Python plotting tools is required.

Wintersession is for University affiliates only.
