Dask Overview

This technical, hands-on overview class offers a brief but precise look at the many aspects of deploying and programming Dask, beginning with fundamentals of parallelism and Dask Dataframe, a model for large-scale tabular data based on extending Pandas. The class also explores visualizing the system using Dask’s real-time, animated dashboards.

Dask Overview is recommended as a standalone class or as the first day of a deeper, multi-day exploration of Dask.
