Introductory Python for Ecologists

Introductory Python for Ecologists is presented jointly by ACENET and the Ocean Tracking Network (OTN). Over multiple days, it explores data analysis and visualization with Python, based on the Data Carpentry Lessons. Each session builds on the last.

The series starts with basic Python syntax and the Jupyter notebook interface. It then moves to importing CSV files using the Pandas package to manipulate and summarize data frames, and covers a brief introduction to plotting. Finally, it demonstrates how to work with databases directly from Python.

No previous coding experience is necessary.
