Python for total Beginners

October 22 @ 9:00 am 1:00 pm

Registration Closed

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 biweekly 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. No deeper knowledge about programming is necessary for this 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.

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:
