SCHEDULE

sept1
Monday, 1 September 6:30 – 9:30 pmPart 1 - Introduction to Programming in Python

In part one of this series we'll start at the basics. From a conceptual introduction to programming and the characteristics of Python, we'll move on to cover syntax and get hands on writing code in Python. Coding experience will come in handy, but is by no means required.

sept2
Tuesday, 2 September 6:30 – 9:30 pmPart 2 - Webscraping in Python

The second part builds on the introduction of part 1 and will focus specifically on the goal of getting data from the web. In journalism, science and increasingly in business, data that is represented in web pages can provide useful information. We'll look at the technique of webscraping and how we can do this in Python. At the end of the workshop you'll have written your own scrapers and used them to acquire data from the web.

PREREQS & PREPARATION

Please bring a laptop to class.
