About this event

In this meet-up collaboration (Codecademy Abuja x Codecademy Seoul), we will take you through your first steps towards data visualization using real-life data. We will conclude with a surprise giveaway at the end, courtesy of Codecademy Abuja.

This beginner level meet-up may be of interest if you are keen on taking off the training wheels for a bit and put to use what you have learnt, hands-on. You may enjoy attending if you are currently interested in any of the following:

- Python

- Pandas

- Data Science

- Data Analysis

- Data visualization in a broad sense

If you would like to follow along on your own computer, here's what you'll need:

Step 1.

Historical New York City Crime Data 2000-2020 as a CSV file (converted from Excel via NYC gov crime stats): You can download the CSV file here.
