Python programming proficiency is the most sought-after skill in data science, and it's no wonder. With powerful statistical libraries, algorithmic capabilities, and built-in scalability, Python is the perfect language for data science. This masterclass session will provide you with an understanding of the basics on data wrangling capabilities that come from Python and its libraries, why Python is the preferred language for data science and how Python enables scientific and engineering programming.

In this masterclass we will demonstrate key features, and some tips & tricks, for getting the most out of the most popular Python Data Science libraries including Pandas, Seaborn, Plotly, Keras & Tensorflow. While this masterclass will be of interest to many within the data science community, it will be of particular value to those with a working knowledge of the Python programming language and some experience with Pandas Dataframes. During the session attendees may follow along with worked examples if they have a standard Python / Jupyter Notebooks environment available.

This Masterclass will be facilitated by Frank Callaly. Frank is a technical trainer and software architect based in Galway Ireland with over 15 years of experience working with, and leading, development teams to deliver large-scale high-performance software systems. Frank has lead teams to deliver software that has been deployed in mobile networks, including Tier 1 networks, across the globe . In more recent times Frank has focused more heavily on the area of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Deep Learning, with a strong emphasis on the Python programming language.
