This course provides a practical introduction to the writing of Python programs for the complete novice. Participants are led through the core aspects of Python illustrated by a series of example programs. Upon completion of the course, attentive participants will be able to write simple Python programs from scratch and to customize more complex code to fit their needs.
Presentations and demonstrations. Practical exercises (either in the lab with assistants or on your own). Presentations will be given online, mixed with exercises where teaching assistants will be available online to help with the exercises.
The course is suitable for complete beginners and assumes no prior programming experience (beyond the ability to use a text editor). A very basic knowledge of UNIX would be an advantage, such as navigating through folders and issuing commands at a shell prompt. We will not teach UNIX in detail: Other courses are available at SciLifeLab for it. Make sure your laptop has python installed for the practical exercises.
Due to limited space the course can accommodate a maximum of 30 participants. If we receive more applications, participants will be selected based on several criteria. Selection criteria include correct entry requirements, motivation to attend the course as well as gender and geographical balance.
