Python Crash Courses: Intro to Python

This workshop is being offered remotely via Zoom only. Registrants will receive a Zoom link; those on the waitlist will not receive a Zoom link unless they are bumped up to a registered spot. The day after the workshop, registrants and those on the waitlist will receive a link to the workshop recording.

The Python Crash Courses workshop series has two components: Introduction to Python and Intro to Data. The entire series uses the Anaconda distribution of Python. Those interested in attending all of the Python Crash Courses should register for both Introduction to Python and Intro to Data.  

The Introduction to Python workshop 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. 

This introduction is appropriate for absolute beginners or those interested in a review. After attending Introduction to Python, 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.

This workshop is offered by University Libraries and will be led by librarians Phil McDaniel, Lorin Bruckner, Michele Hayslett, Matt Jansen, and Rolando Rodriguez along with Mark Reed from ITS Research Computing. Contact Matt Jansen with any questions.
