## Beginner’s Guide to Using Python with HR Data | Exploration Series

### Part One – Matplotlib

In this first tutorial series, I’m exploring the IBM HR Attrition and Performance data set. This is a great data set used to demonstrate the possibilities from using machine learning and other data science techniques.

In this next walkthrough, we’ll begin to ‘see’ our data through the use of visualization packages. In R there are 3 commons plotting tools, and other packages extend these main items. In Python, there is Matplotlib, and most other packages build on this foundation. So, the decision of where to start with Python plotting is an easy one – let’s get going.
