Event description

About this event

Pandas is a pretty powerful Python library that allow users to manipulate and analyse their spreadsheet data through the use of dataframes. Unfortunately, the first time you try to use it, it can be confusing, and much of the functionality and usefulness can be hidden from a beginner to the library. This is a one day workshop that will cover the basics of using pandas, and will show users how to clean and edit data, and we'll even dip our toes into the in-built pandas data visualisation tools. This workshop would be most appropriate for those who have attended at least one of our beginner's workshop, or at least have some understanding of how to use loops, functions and methods in Python. **Requirements** Attendees should bring a laptop (with administrative privileges!) and charger, with Python, Jupyter notebooks and the pandas package pre-installed. You can find instructions for how to do this in this guide: https://github.com/resbaz/introPython_July2017/blob/master/Python_Installation.md

A little bit about us......

We are researchers, training researchers! We get you! and would like to embrace you into our Community. Please feel free to swing by our new space called "Co - Lab", located in the Eastern Resource Centre, Room 329, Level 3 ( Building # 171) You are welcome anytime and we would love to see you there!

Research Platforms provides, builds and maintains ICT infrastructure for researchers, in particular cloud compute infrastructure and data storage infrastructure. Enabling data-driven research and the effective use of IT is at the centre of everything we do. We service more than 3,000 researchers from all disciplines across Parkville, within Victoria, and nationally.We work closely with key research support units including Faculty IT teams, the Melbourne eResearch Group, the Library, and other Infrastructure Services departments.

As well as providing underlying infrastructure services, we also work with researchers to provide a range of training, engagement and community building activities aimed at both maximising usage of the facilities, and maximising the value researchers get from them. By building community infrastructure in this way, we connect researchers with each other, with the supplied infrastructure, and with related infrastructure and services such as NCI, Pawsey, VLSCI, etc.
