What is Kudo?
Kudo is Greek for fame or honor.
The idea behind Kudo Cards is to say “Thank You” in a meaningful way. By taking the time to specify and write down what you are actually grateful for.
As an alternative to just give a card to a co-worker, you can enhance the whole experience by building a Kudo Wall so that everyone can see which kudos were given from whom to whom.
Another nice variation is to put up a Kudo Box. You can put in the cards and at the end of the year / quarter / month you can do a tombola and give away some swag for every drawn lot.
You can either print Kudo cards yourself or buy a very nice box of high quality cards from the M30 webshop

matplotlib is the workhorse of data science visualization. The module pyplot gives us MATLAB like plots.
The most basic plot is done with the “plot”-function. It looks like this:

When you area already familiar with the basic plot from the introduction to matplotlib here is another type of plot used in data science.
A very basic visualization is the scatter plot:
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
N = 100
x = np.random.rand(N)
y = np.random.rand(N)
