Google Colab Workshops

The Python & Data workshop series currently uses the Google Colab platform.  For attendees wishing to actively participate during the workshop, attendees will need to ensure that they have a Google Account. Attendees can use the following "New Notebook" link to test and ensure that they have a working Google Account.  Optionally, the "Google Colab Overview" link 

The following link goes to a Google Colab notebook that provides a very brief overview of how to upload files to Google Colab, connect to Google Drive, and a few other important notes about using Google Colab.

The following links redirect to the Google Colab notebooks used for teaching the Python workshops.  Additionally, there are direct links to the datasets (CSV and Excel) used in the workshops.
