Python Crash Courses: Basics (Online)
October 18, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Python Crash Courses workshop series has two components: Basics (covered in the first two sessions) and Intro to Data (covered in the following three sessions). The entire series uses the Anaconda distribution of Python. Those interested in attending all five Python Crash Courses should register for both Basics and Python Crash Courses: Intro to Data
The Python Crash Courses: Basics introduces basic concepts in the Python programming language such as object types, base Python data structures, file paths, and flow control (if statements & for-loops) using the Anaconda distribution of Python. We'll work through some applied examples.
Basics is appropriate for absolute beginners or those interested in a review. After attending Basics, beginners can continue with Intro to Data, which introduces fundamental tools for working with tabular data in Python such as Jupyter Notebooks, markdown, Pandas, and data visualization packages.
Those with a good understanding of Python fundamentals may want to skip the Basics and take only Intro to Data.
Instructors: Matt Jansen, Phil McDaniel, Lorin Bruckner, Michele Hayslett, & Mark Reed
Python Crash Courses: Basics will be held from 1-2pm virtually via Zoom each Tuesday:

- October 25
- This series will be offered via Zoom ONLY. Registration closes at 24 hours before the start of the workshop.
