Hacker Stats in Python (Part 1)

Join us or this live, hands-on training where you will sharpen your skills in statistical inference by exploring multiple facets of a rich data set. You will perform exploratory data analysis, make informative graphics, compute confidence intervals, and perform hypothesis tests, all using a "hacker stats" approach with Python. The session will run three hours, taking you from start to finish of a statistical analysis. There will be breaks and plenty of opportunities to ask questions throughout the training.
