This hands-on workshop will demonstrate the problem solving process of getting data, exploring it, visualising, analysing in order to answer some questions, and assessing the results. Participants will gain transferrable knowledge, along with some useful Python commands. For Beginners, career changers. No previous Python knowledge required.
