Learn Python and foundations of programming in this three-day, non-credit, interactive, mini-course. This opportunity is for beginners and does not require any programming experience.
You’ll learn and practice the basics of programming such as: data types (strings, lists), loops, functions, working with numeric data, and plotting data. This mini-course introduces basic scientific computing and data plotting concepts through the use of the Python libraries NumPy and Matplotlib.
No software installation required; learners should bring a laptop or request one from us during registration.
The workshop uses as its curriculum “Get Data Off the Ground with Python,” an OpenEdX course by GW professor Lorena Barba. Instructors and helpers will work with you as we do the lessons together and you practice what you learn. Participants are expected to attend all three days of the workshop: January 10, January 17, and January 24. Those who meet the workshop requirements will receive a certificate of completion.
Please note, registration is at capacity.
