Working with data in Python for the Aspiring Data Scientists

Data Science is the latest data buzzword, but what does this mean for us, the analysts and developers? Well, this is just another opportunity to grow and learn a new skill. The great thing about the era we live in is that information is everywhere, but can be a little overwhelming for someone who is just starting off in a new field or wants to learn a new skill.

In this session, we will use Python in an easy-to-understand layout by using Jupyter Notebooks as our interface and pandas as our data manipulation library. This session is for everyone that is just starting off in Python. We will learn how to import/export data into Python, as well as manipulate and analyze data. Finally, we will look at how to bring this back into our SQL Server world.
