Introduction to Python 

Machine Learning mashup


This course is for people who have no experience programming, or no experience programming in Python. 

Participants will learn about programming concepts such as loops, conditionals, and recursion; as well as how to properly write and interpret code using Python’s syntax.  The trainer will explain how to use Python’s documentation and other online resources to answer questions about Python code. 

The course will be taught using Jupyter Notebooks, though participants familiar with IDEs (integrated development environments) may choose to use different software to write their code. 

This is a beginner level course. No previous knowledge on the topic is required/expected and the trainer will cover all the basics. 

After taking part in this event, you may decide that you need some further help in applying what you have learnt to your research. If so, you can book a Data Surgery meeting with one of our training fellows.
