Python for simple data visualizations

November 24, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


Building on our two previous Python workshops, today we will look at various packages to do simple plotting and data visualization in Python. In the hands-on part, we will focus on matplotlib which is a well-established Python plotting library for for creating static and animated visualizations in Python.
