Calcul Québec: Data Analysis and Visualization in Python

November 27, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until November 27, 2020

If you have taken our workshop Introduction to programming with Python (PYT101) and you’re ready to dig deeper, this workshop is for you.

This workshop will allow you to perform a basic data analysis, from loading data with Python to visualizing the final results. In order to do this, you will discover the Pandas libraries and the visualization libraries: Matplotlib and Plotnine.

Data analysis is limited to the selection of certain inputs, the temporary transformation of data, the calculation of simple statistics and the automation of this entire process.

Course plan:

Day 1 (November 26, 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM)

  • Pandas and DataFrames in Python;
  • Indexing, slicing and subsetting;
  • Data types and data format;
  • Combining DataFrames.

Day 2 (November 27, 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM)

  • Data analysis automation;
  • Plotting with Matplotlib or Plotnine;
  • Accessing SQL using Python and Pandas.


  • Basic knowledge of Python (or similar language). Refer to the workshop PYT101 Introduction to Programming with Python.
  • We will use the Zoom platform. Because this event is a practical workshop, it is very useful having a secondary screen where you would get the instructor window on one screen and your own window on your main screen.
  • We will use the Jupyter Notebook interface. Make sure you have a modern Web browser like Google Chrome, Firefox, Edge or Safari.
