Introduction to Python
October 8, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An introduction to one of the most popular languages used for scientific applications today — Python 3. The workshop will start with a basic overview of the environment and the tools needed to develop Python 3 programs. Then participants will quickly begin to learn the fundamentals of the programming language.
The session will be presented using Jupyter, a system commonly used in scientific communities to provide transparent and reproducible results. Workshop participants will learn how to read data files, clean data, and visualize results.
Previous coding experience is not required. Participants are encouraged to bring fully charged laptops with Jupyter or at least Python 3 already installed. Laptops will be available for attendees who need to borrow one. This introductory workshop is presented in collaboration with UMaine’s Advanced Computing Group. If you would prefer to attend online instead, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
