Event description

Description

Python is a popular and powerful programming language that has long been a preferred backend tool in web development and is also quickly becoming the de-facto language of Data Science.

This workshop is a hands-on introduction to Python programming for absolute beginners, with a focus on programming fundamentals and how you can use code to solve real-world problems. In this class, we will also discuss Python's role in the Data Science workflow, and dive into how to use Python for basic data analysis.

This bootcamp is designed to teach core Python coding concepts through practical examples and guided practice, and is the basis of a semester-long course that the instructor is teaching at Harvard University this fall.

Have a schedule conflict? All of our instructor-led sessions are video recorded and shared with you after each class, so you can review any of the sessions at your leisure and as often as you want.

How our sessions work

We host these live online classes out of our office in Cambridge, MA. Guests tune in online to watch the live presentations. During each session as well as in between, we set up a Slack channel where students can collaborate and/or submit questions and have them answered by the instructor. You'll be sent the webinar access information and Slack invitation in a separate email before the start date.

This online-only bootcamp has three sessions, from 6:30pm - 8.00pm EST on September 6, 13 and 18.
