Intro to Python Programming Workshop
Python is a very powerful computational tool with a thriving community and growing user base that is being applied in all aspects of computing. One of the applications where Python stands out the most is in scientific programming and data analysis, where more and more scientists are turning to Python for development and handling their data for its open access, ease of use, and immense wealth of programming tools.
In this workshop we will cover Python programming from writing your first program, to efficient data handling, to creating publication quality visualizations, and more. The workshop will be an interactive and hands-on 3 hour session aimed at all experience levels. So if you would like to learn how to handle your data efficiently, improve your programming skills, and learn about one of the fastest growing computational tools today, this workshop is for you!
The workshop is free and will take place November 21st from 3-6pm. Please sign up by filling this form to save a spot. We will contact you with more details once you are signed up.
The workshop will be led by Carlos G. Oliver, a recent grad from the department of Biology and currently a Ph.D. student in Computer Science. He has 5+ years of experience with Python, particularly in scientific programming and data analysis. You can contact him (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions!
