Python's Data Science Stack (JSM 2016)

Python's Data Science Stack (JSM 2016)

The Python language was not originally designed with scientific computing in mind, but its beauty and ease-of-use have inspired the development of a powerful and mature ecosystem of scientific and data-focused computing tools. This talk will give a broad introduction to the essential tools for data analysis and visualization in Python, as well as a look at recent developments and new tools on the horizon – including Altair, the new declarative visualization library for Python built on Vega-Lite.
