Description

Why this course?

Businesses and individuals who embrace Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) tools reap the benefits of more informed decision making, improved productivity and enhanced technical capability. Python is a great enabler of STEM because it is an easy to use programming language with powerful libraries for doing just about anything. The course is unique in that it is taught interactively and almost purely by example from a domain expert with over nine years of STEM experience.

Course content

Python for spreadsheets and databases is aimed at those familiar with Python. The course material builds on material from the introductory course Getting started with Python, and shows how Python can be effectively used to move data in and out of spreadsheets and databases. We cover the following topics:

  • A brief overview of arrays with Numpy
  • Accessing databases with SQLAlchemy
  • Using Pandas to read and write from spreadsheets and databases

The day includes interactive exercises with worked solutions, designed to solidify knowlege covered.

What you need to bring

Participants will need to bring a laptop with a recent operating system installed and access to a normal user account. For the course we will be using the Anaconda Python Distribution for Python 2.7, available for Windows, MacOS, and Linux as a free download here.

The venue

The workshop is fully catered, and will be held in modern well-equipped training rooms in the heart of the Perth central business district. Abundant transport connectivity and parking options are available and a number of major hotels are nearby. Fast wifi and wired internet connectivity are available, as well as a large number of power points to keep your laptop charged. A virtual tour of the facilities is available here.
