Welcome to Day Ten!
Welcome to Day Ten of the Earth Analytics Bootcamp! Today, you will write
Python code in
Jupyter Notebook to implement another strategy for DRY (i.e. Do Not Repeat Yourself) code: functions.
After completing the lessons for Day 10, you will be able to:
- Explain how functions help you to write DRY code
Pythoncode to define and use functions (i.e. modular code)
- Apply functions to
- Create new
numpy arraysfrom the output of functions
|Review Day 9 / Questions|
