About this event

In this meet-up collab (Codecademy Abuja x Codecademy Seoul), we will take you through your first steps towards data visualisation using real-life data. We will conclude with a surprise giveaway and Menti pop quiz 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: 

๐Ÿ Python 

๐Ÿผ Pandas

๐Ÿ DataFrames / datasets

๐Ÿผ Matplotlib

๐Ÿผ Jupyter Notebooks

๐Ÿ data visualisation 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

Step 2. 

Install Anaconda Navigator on your computer so you can run Jupyter Notebooks: Check out Codecadem's comprehensive guide here. Don't forget to set your environment to Python. 

Step 3. 

Install and run Pandas on Jupyter Notebooks: Anaconda (parent company) put together a great guide here

*** Alternatively, follow along on Google Colab.
