Python Open Labs – CSV Files

As we move towards the end of Spring semester, having covered most of the basics in Python, the recent sessions have been focusing on introducing python modules requested by attendees.

Last week had a second session on web-scraping with BeautifulSoup, I have updated the practice code for the same in Session-17 folder of the google drive link mentioned below.

This week, on April 7, 2017 I introduced the Python CSV module for reading and writing data from csv files. A very easy module primarily for reading CSV data, it requires the user to understand only a few of the details. The relevant sample code and a practise csv file can be found on the google drive link below, under Session-18 folder.

All of the course slides and examples are made available on:

Next week’s topic is XML file parsing !

See you next Friday from 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM at DSSC (Room – 215), Lehman Library at Columbia SIPA !
