NHS-R/NHS.pycom Online Conference Workshop 2023 – Data Visualisation with Seaborn

Data Visualisation with Seaborn with Parisa Gregg

We are very excited to announce that the NHS-R Community will be hosting its annual conference, including pre-conference online talks, online workshops and the main conference, during October 2023

The online conference workshop will be hosted via Zoom and take place on the following date:

  • Thursday 05th October 2023 – 9:30am until 1:00pm (UK time)

Workshop Content

Over the last few decades, a plethora of Python packages have been developed to tackle a range of data visualisation problems. This tutorial will provide a hands-on introduction to Seaborn, a fantastic open-source plotting library that builds on the Matplotlib package. Seaborn allows complex data visualisations to be created simply and easily, whilst also improving on the default look and feel of Matplotlib figures.

This hands-on workshop will cover:

  • Seaborn’s statistical functions (kernel density estimation, regression models, etc)
  • creating multi-plot grids with Seaborn
  • customisation of Seaborn figures with Matplotlib.

By the end, you will be able to:

  • use a range of techniques for communicating your data insights
  • leverage the best aspects of Seaborn and Matplotlib to create beautiful graphics with concise code.

No previous experience in Seaborn is necessary for this tutorial. However, basic familiarity with Pandas DataFrames and plotting with Matplotlib would be useful. This workshop will be run using an online environment with all the dependencies and libraries pre-installed.
