This mini-course will introduce participants to Python programming.
Python is a popular programming language for analyzing numerical and textual data. The mini-course will present elements and features of Python and how it can be used within a workflow. The course includes hands-on exercises so participants can become familiar with programming techniques. We will use the workstations in the Digital Learning Lab in the Lewis Science Library. Emphasis will be on getting started with Python and understanding its fundamentals so attendees can continue on their own. The course is intended for researchers working with data generated by simulations, acquired from experiments, or collected from other sources. Experience in another programming language is recommended background for the session.
