This is a great year for anyone who loves numbers, especially the numbers 2 or 20.

February 20, 2020 is a date to circle on the calendar if you're an analyst, researcher, or GIS professional who wants to do more with analytics this year. Python is the scripting language of choice for many ArcGIS users. As in the GIS world, Python is hugely popular in the data science world, with an active and ever-growing community of users. 

On February 20, join our free live training seminar to discover which Python libraries are essential for spatial data science and analytical workflows. Esri presenters Shannon Kalisky and Atma Mani (experts on the topic) will break down the capabilities and give pointers on how to determine which library is most suitable for your project needs. Demos will show how to access Python libraries in ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Notebooks and put the power of scripting to work.

This is a fairly advanced topic, but if you're just getting started with Python, you're welcome to attend. You may enjoy discovering what's possible with scripting in general and Python in particular.

Three, one-hour sessions will be broadcast live, and each session includes Q&A with the presenters. You can view more details and get a calendar reminder at the link below.

What: Python Libraries for Spatial Data Science

When: Thursday, February 20, 2020 — 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 3:00 p.m. Pacific time

Where: Online at the Esri Training website

I have wanted to learn Python for years - going to start at the beginning though.

Nice, Robin. This free web course is a popular way to start learning Python basics: https://www.esri.com/training/catalog/57630436851d31e02a43f13c/python-for-everyone/

Just noticed the free web course is for ArcGIS Pro and I have ArcGIS Online.  Can I still take it?

To complete the hands-on exercises, you would need ArcGIS Pro. It could be useful just to read through the course without doing the exercise, or you could download the free ArcGIS Pro trial software (just a thought): Free Trial of ArcGIS Pro | Try for 21 Days - Esri

Great thought!  It will also give me a chance to see the difference between ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Online.

Thanks!
