Introduction to Python (Hybrid)

Friday, September 23 at 10:00am to 5:00pm

Knight Library, DREAM Lab
1501 Kincaid Street, Eugene, OR

This workshop will introduce you to the fundamentals of programming in Python. Intended for absolute beginners or anyone wanting to review the basics, this workshop lays the foundation for attendees to understand Python code and begin writing scripts that apply to your work.

The workshop follows the Software Carpentries workshop curriculum Plotting and Programming in Python, and will cover such introductory topics as variables, data types, data frames, plotting, lists, for loops, conditionals, and (if time allows) writing basic functions.

Before the workshop, please install Python 3 in the interface of your choice. We recommend JupyterLab Desktop, available for installation here. If you need help troubleshooting an installation, you can make an appointment with us. We will also offer a 2-hour orientation to Python, called Python for Absolute Beginners, the day before. If all you know about Python is that it sounds like a snake, consider attending.
