Online Event

Want to improve your data visualizations? The first day (February 21) of this workshop will cover how to choose the right chart type for your data and how good design choices will make your chart easier to understand. The focus will be on visualization best practices, independent of any specific visualization software.

The rest of the workshop (February 22-23) is an introduction to making interactive data visualizations in Python. Learners will wrangle data into the proper format using the pandas library, create visualizations using the Plotly Python library, and display these visualizations and create widgets using Streamlit.

Workshops will be held online via Zoom.
