5 Days: April 24-28, 2017
Join Python software developer and book author David Beazley for an intense no-bull Python course for programmers, scientists, and engineers who want to know how to use Python to solve all manner of practical problems. A major theme of the course is on using Python to analyze data, process files, and interact with web services. In addition to learning Python, you will also learn about third party extensions including numpy and matplotlib. Even if you already know some Python, you will walk away from this course with new insight and ideas. This is the same course that Dave regularly teaches on-site for government and corporate clients.
One of the most unique aspects of this course are the practical exercises that center around the manipulation of various open data sources. Not only will you learn Python, but you'll see a lot of other neat stuff.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Free on-street parking is easily available in the area. If traveling by CTA train, the closest CTA station is the Red Line Berwyn stop. Walk west on Berwyn to Clark Street and then head north to Balmoral. Total walking time is 15 minutes. From downtown, it may actually be substantially faster to take the #146 Express Bus which takes you directly to the same Berwyn CTA station. The CTA #22 Clark Street bus passes directly by the location. Get off at Balmoral street. The closest Metra rail station is the Ravenswood stop on the Union Pacific North line. Walk east on Lawrence to Clark street. Walk one mile north on Clark to Balmoral.
