Data Analysis with Python, Pandas, and SQL

Data obtained from the web or other outside sources is often messy and difficult to manage.  Pandas, a popular tabular data frame library in Python, and SQL, a structured query language for databases, provide two different but effective tools for getting a better handle on your data.  This workshop is designed to introduce you to both tools in the context of managing research data, demonstrate the strengths of each approach, and review how the two approaches can be particularly effective when used in combination.
