Rapidly emulating professional visualizations from New York Times in Python using Altair

Short talk

Go to NumFOCUS academy page.

Transitioning analysis from familiar Python data manipulation tools to unfamiliar JavaScript visualization tools - for visualization that’s interactive, effective & aesthetic - can be a barrier for many data scientists. This talk will inspire you to use Altair to make professional looking statistical charts (like The NYT & The Economist etc) rapidly, for effective visualization in Python.
