Things They Never Told You About Cleaning Your Data

April 26, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us the evening of Wednesday, April 26th to hear from Safia Abdalla, open source developer, writer, and an organizer of PyData Chicago.

Talk description from Safia:
Cleaning data is often described as the “unsexy” part of data science. I don’t think this is true. Scrubbing a messy data set can reveal volumes about the context, history, and flaws of the dataset collected and inform the data analytics process. In this talk, I cover techniques that should be used when approaching data cleaning and provide practical exercises for attendees to complete.

Speaker Bio:
Safia is an open source developer and writer. She mostly writes code in JavaScript, see for yourself on her GitHub. When she is not writing code, she can be found organizing PyData Chicago, a community of folks who are interested in open source scientific software and open science. When she’s not doing that, she can be found drinking black tea, reading on her Kindle, or running outside.
