R and Python coding with Prython
- Know some Python and/or R
- Basic knowledge about data science and analytics
In this course we will learn how to use Prython, which offers a different way of coding than existing R/Python IDEs. It allows us to drop our code into panels that we place and connect in a canvas. In a normal IDE your code will run linearly from start to end, making it really hard to create sub-experiments/tests, and also to organise your project clearly. In Prython each panel accepts multiple IN and OUT connections, effectively transforming it into a 2D Jupiter notebook. It also has a wide array of tools that complement this canvas functionality: such as displaying dataframes next to the panels that modified them, allowing you to freeze your outputs, attaching consoles, navigation markers, etc.
We assume that the student is already familiar with R or Python, and some familiarity with matplotlib, scikit-learn,or keras would be beneficial as well.
Who this course is for:
- Python and R practitioners with a focus on data science
- ML engineers
- Statisticians, engineers, and economists designing statistical models
