General Information






This course will give a hands-on introduction to the data plotting framework Matplotlib.


This framework is written in Python and very popular in the Data Science areas thanks to its wide variety of functionality.

In the workshop a fundamental introduction will be given and afterwards a guided exercise allows the participants to gain experience at their own pace while having the instructors available for quick feedback and advice.

Required Tools/Knowledge

  • A basic knowledge of the Python language (variables, functions, loops, conditions)
  • A working Python setup (The instructors will use Thonny for the workshop but you can bring whatever suits you)
  • The matplotlib package should be installed
  • Installing the pandas package is strongly recommended since most plotting data is generated by it.
