  • Just enough of the Python computer programming language to read, filter, join, group, aggregate and rank structured data with pandas, a popular open-source tool for statistical analysis

  • How to record, remix and republish your work using Project Jupyter, the emerging standard for generating reproducible research.

  • How to explore data using Altair, a Python package that offers a simple, structured grammar for generating charts.

Prerequisites: If you've tried Python once or twice, have a good attitude and know how to take a few code crashes in stride, you are qualified. We want you.
