In this workshop, you will explore different types of graphs and learn how to customise them using two of the most popular plotting libraries in Python, matplotlib and seaborn (Data Visualisation). This is taught with Jupyter notebooks, which allow program code, results, visualisations and documentation to be blended seamlessly. Join us for this live coding workshop where we write programs that produce results, using the researcher-focused training modules from the highly regarded Software Carpentry Foundation (

You will learn:
