Plotting in Python with Matplotlib (Hands-on)

Prerequisites: Python experience at least equal to that provided by our "Introduction to Python for Non-Programmers tutorial" and
familiarity with using Linux from the command-line.

This is a hands-on tutorial which will teach you to do plotting with Matplotlib, Python’s most popular plotting library. We will explore how to make a series of simple plots, both interactively and in scripts. We will discuss some of the more advanced features, including animations and interactive plots. This tutorial will also show you how you can customize every detail of your plots, such as the font color of the tick marks or the location of the legend.
