Python is the most popular programming language used today by data scientists. Python is integrated into the Microsoft stack in tools such as Power BI, Azure ML, Azure Databricks, Azure Synapse Analytics, and SQL Server. If you want to learn Python but you don't know the best place to start, attend this session to get an introduction to Python using a real-world dataset to walkthrough the basics of Python using the Anaconda distribution of Python and Visual Studio Code. We will cover all the necessary basic skills needed to get started with Python such as, installation, variables, control flow, and packages. We will go over the basics to building proper machine learning models in Python using packages like scikit-learn, pandas, numpy, matplotlib, seaborn, tensorflow, keras, and more. This is a completely new, updated version of my intro session It is a guided intro to both Python and building a machine learning model in Python using a real-world dataset.
None, but a basic level of some programming language, like T-SQL, C#, Java, already is helpful.
