Abstract: In this training, you will learn how to accelerate your data analyses using the Python language and Pandas, a library specifically designed for tabular data analysis. We start by learning the core Pandas data structures, the Series and DataFrame. From these foundations, we will learn to use the split-apply-combine paradigm for grouped computations, manipulate time series, and perform advanced joins between datasets. Specifically, loading, filtering, grouping, and transforming data. Having completed this workshop, you will understand the fundamentals and advanced features of Pandas, be aware of common pitfalls, and be ready to perform your own analyses.
