Introduction to Python with Data Analysis(Hands-On) @ Lighthouse Labs

This meetup is an invitation for beginners to join the exciting world of programming with Python. 

Please take a minute to register and create an account on Big Data University before the meetup.

We will introduce you to pandas, an open-source library, and we will use it to load, manipulate, analyze, and visualize cool datasets. Then we will introduce you to another open-source library, scikit-learn, and we will use some of its machine learning algorithms to build smart models and make cool predictions.

Wondering if this meetup is right for you?

This meetup is aimed at individuals with no programming experience and has no prerequisites.

If you are new to programming in Python, this meetup is definitely for you.

If you are looking to brush up your skills in programming in Python and using pandas and scikit-learn, this meetup will also be interesting to you.

This meetup is NOT for you if you have extensive experience with using pandas and scikit-learn, as the content might be too simplistic.  

Audience: Beginners in Data Science and Data Science Enthusiasts

Presenters: Joseph Santarcangelo, Data Scienstist at IBM and Alex Aklson, Data Scientist at IBM

Free Pizza and Drinks! Come learn, eat, and socialize! 

We will live stream the event on a best effort basis. 

Thank you to Lighthouse Labs for providing the space for our meetup this week.

The BDU Ambassador Program is an initiative that started in July 2015 with the objective to speed up the dissemination of Data Science, Big Data, and Analytic skills using Big Data University content. From an ambassador’s perspective, it’s a way to jump start their offerings on these hot areas. 

Lighthouse Labs community of mentors consists of over 80 developers. Currently hiring.  You can check out the full list of  postings and apply here.
