About this Event

Event Description:

This event is for beginners who want to start learning the basics of programming with Python.

Getting started with programming

Overview of careers using Python

We'll jump into coding and cover the Python syntax and programming concepts for:

- Variables

- Strings

- Numbers

- Lists

- Dictionaries

- Conditionals

- Loops

We'll then take our knowledge and solve a classic computer science problem together.

Return for part two, where we will cover:

- Functions

- Scopes

- Working with libraries

We'll put together what we learned, making useful code we can re-use on different datasets.

About Your Instructor:

Andrew Means

I'm passionate about solving problems. I've leveraged this passion to explore innovative solutions to uncover new areas of opportunity that were previously unknown.

My background in software development, data engineering, and data science lets me solve these problems creatively and from different angles. From recognizing pain points and collecting data about the issue to creating a developer tool that when integrated would save thousands of engineering hours on manual processes.

I am on a mission to create beautiful experiences using a synthesis of data science, creative feature engineering, and scalable design.
