We will start this workshop by a comprehensive overview of the basics and fundamentals of Python, the most taught programming language in CS courses around the world.
All the relevant libraries to produce outstanding scientific results. With the scientific Python toolbox we will cover scientific applications of Python such as solving partial differential equations , optimization or machine learning problems
Practical examples for practical people. You will learn how to integrate Python with the most standard enterprise applications to perform fast and complete analysis and visualizations of your data.
All the material available online . Anywhere. Anytime.
On day 1 you will familiarize yourself with the basics of python. By the end of the first day you'll be able to set-up python, search, download and install packages, use a version control system, collaborate remotely, load, transform and visualize simple
On day 2 we will introduce you to some intermediate libraries which are built on top of the ones from day 1, namely scientific libraries, visualization libraries and above all, data analysis libraries. With the help of IPython, by the end of day 2 you'll
be able to load, clean, munge and transform efficiently most of the datasets which can fit in memory. You'll also be able to create beautiful statistical visualizations, as well as automatically creating documents and reports.
On day 3 we will tackle some advanced libraries which are built on top of the material from the previous days. We will use machine learning techniques to estimate the optimal parameters, perform highly efficient computations for option pricing as well
as learning which tools to use to extract data from an online resource.
