Our data science course is a 6-week series of 2 hour workshops, hosted at Trinity College Dublin. The next course will be held in the Summer of 2017. Participants will require only a laptop with MacOS, Windows or Linux installed. Previous coding experience in Python is recommended. Please contact Diana at if you would like to know more.

Course Overview

Python can boast an incredible library of packages to help make working with most kinds of data efficient and easy. In these workshops, participants will be taught how to best utilise Python for effective data analysis and visualisation. With every new tool introduced in the class, real-world data will be analysed and hands-on problems will be solved. Participants will also learn how to optimise and package their Python projects, and learn best practices for Python. The aim for this course is for the participants to leave equipped with the Python tools needed to tackle their analysis problems.
