Spring Break Python Camp

This event has already taken place, please don't try to go to it!

Learn Python and foundations of programming in this five-day, non-credit, interactive, mini-course over Spring Break. 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. The mini-course introduces basic scientific computing and data plotting concepts through the use of the Python libraries NumPy and Matplotlib. We’ll use Jupyter notebooks for interactive computing, all in your browser--no software installation required.

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 five days of the workshop. Those who meet the workshop requirements will receive a certificate of completion. 

Laptops are required; we can loan you one if needed. 

Instructors: Megan Potterbusch, Laura Wrubel
