Python for total Beginners

May 6 @ 9:00 am 1:00 pm

Motivation

Python is a general-purpose, versatile and popular programming language, that is becoming increasingly popular in science , for machine learning application and for general scripting and data analysis purposes. It’s great as a first language because it is concise and easy to read. However, finding motivation to learn Python or even to consolidate learned skills after joining a workshop, can be hard.

Thus, we want to offer a weekly Hands-On programming course in Python, to start with basic programming concepts for total beginners and then tackle more advanced topics in the following three appointments.

Course Details:

This course will show you how to install Python on your machine and together we aim to understand the basic concepts of programming in Python. We will have a look into some basic objects in programming such as integers, floats, strings and will cover some concepts such as loops and if-else conditions.

Requirements

No deeper knowledge about programming is necessary for the first course. If you have some preferences and / or  are already familiar with some concepts  of Python or programming in general, join form the second/ third/ fourth course on, or just tell us, so we can shift our focus if many of you are interested in a specific topic.

If you already want to prepare some more, try to install Python here (basic Python):
https://www.python.org/downloads/

Or here (including some helpful packages and package managing):

You can also start getting familiar with Python, e.g. using one of these online courses:
