Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns, I'm looking forward to our Data Visualization mini course!

Objectives

The aim of this mini course is to teach you how to produce data visualizations in a variety of programming languages/softwares while also touching on fundamental design principles. By the end of this mini course you will produce a portfolio worthy data visualization.

Project Examples

First Steps/Prerequisites

Participants should have a base-level familiarity with Python. If you are new to Python, but would still like to participate you can review our existing Python Prep materials to get up to speed.

It will also be helpful, but not necessary to have a basic understanding of probability and statistics. If you would like to review some statistics or probability should check out the slides at these links:
