ACENET and Ocean Tracking Network: Introductory Python for Ecologists

Tue, Mar 2, 2021 1:00pm - Tue, Mar 16, 2021 4:00pm

Status: Completed

Introductory workshop in Python for Ecologists using data carpentry materials.

Join ACENET and Ocean Tracking Network (OTN) in our Introductory Python for Ecologists workshop series. Over three weeks, we will explore data analysis and visualization with Python, based on the Data Carpentry Lessons. Each week will build off the last – if you miss a week, check out the previous link to follow along!

No previous coding experience necessary.

We will start with basic Python syntax and the Jupyter notebook interface. Then, we’ll teach you how to import CSV files using the Pandas package to manipulate and summarize data frames, and cover a brief introduction to plotting. The last lesson demonstrates how to work with databases directly from Python.

Be sure to come prepared and have the appropriate software and data files downloaded. You will need to have a laptop with a Mac, Linux or Windows operating system (not a tablet, Chromebook, etc) on which you have administrative privileges, as you will need to pre-load specific software packages. Instructions are available at this link: Setup – Data Analysis and Visualization in Python for Ecologists.

This workshop will take place on:

Tuesday, March 2nd, 1:00-4:00pm (Atlantic)

Tuesday, March 9th, 1:00-4:00pm

Tuesday, March 16th, 1:00-4:00pm
