5. [Plotting Data With Bokeh](http://nbviewer.ipython.org/github/tobyhodges/ITPP/blob/v2/5_PlottingDataWithBokeh.ipynb) - creating interactive plots with the `bokeh` library
###### The Language
Python is a high-level programming language, which is highly versatile, relatively accessible, and extremely well-supported. If you've never programmed before, Python is a great language to start with. A couple of the big reasons for this are: by the standards of programming languages, it is easy for humans to read; and, instead of spending a lot of time worrying about defining rigid types and arranging things in multiple files, it is quick to get started with actually _doing things_ with Python. This course focuses on handling tabular data and creating plots, but, after learning some of the language, you could use Python for a huge range of other tasks, such as: automate repetitive tasks; generate web content; process images; create cross-platform GUI applications; or write programs to quickly perform complex analyses. These are just a few examples of the possibilities.
