Boosting Python for High Performance Data Analytics (2) DataFrame Game

May 20, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Zoom

While Python becomes the most popular programming language since 2019, data scientists often have a few common complaints about its slow speed and the limited capabilities of handling the big data scenarios. In this workshop series, we will present an extensive discussion on how to improve the performance of Python in data science by looking under the hood of its language/libraries and using the technologies to make Python a practical solution for the high-performance big data analytics. In the second…

R Graphics: Introduction to ggplot2

May 24, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Zoom

This seminar teaches the “grammar” of graphics that underlies the ggplot2 package, allowing the user to build eye-catching, publication-quality graphics layer-by-layer. We cover the basic elements of the grammar of graphics, including aesthetics, geoms, scales, and themes, and we will show you how easy ggplot2 makes it to integrate these elements to make informative and beautiful graphics. The seminar is meant to be interactive with attendees participating in the coding, so some very basic R coding knowledge is helpful but…
