Lucy Training Workshop: Introduction to Python

Python is open-sourced, interpreted, object-oriented, high-level programming language. It is easy to learn and very user-friendly because of its simple syntax and readable code. The best way to learn a programming language is to do something useful, therefore this hands-on introductory workshop will cover:

  • Basic data types
  • Creating and assigning values to a variable
  • Using a function
  • Import a Python library and use its functions
  • Read tabular data from a csv file
  • Select individual values and subsections from data
  • Perform operations on arrays of data

No prior knowledge is required. This workshop is open to undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff.

This workshop will be offered in-person in Hesburgh Library. (Note: depending on COVID-19 cases and university policy, this workshop may be delivered virtually over Zoom.)  There is a limit of 15 participants for this workshop. Register Now!
Registration must be completed by Friday, April 22nd.
