The MET Gateway offers Introductory Data Analytics with Python and Jupyter Notebooks

The one day training workshop is aimed at those working in the MedTech sector with no prior programming or data analytics experience. Using a Jupyter notebook environment the workshop will teach participants how to perform data manipulation, data analysis and data visualisation in Python. On completion of the workshop of the participants will be able to understand the capabilities of data analytics and align business goals with techniques. Programming will be performed in a Jupyter notebook environment. Jupyter notebooks are powerful and compelling tools, and have become ultra popular among data scientists. A Jupyter notebook is a document that supports mixing executable code, equations, visualizations, and narrative text and allows to generate reports dynamically. It is a free and open source platform.
