Workshop: Do You Need to Learn Programming? A Self-Critique

This workshop is a chance to decide if Python programming will be useful to you in your role as a researcher. Programming is a powerful part of your research toolkit, but learning a programming language is a substantial commitment. Before taking the full plunge, you can take this opportunity to get to know what programming is and isn't, and whether or not it is worth it for you.

During the workshop, we'll look at how others are using programming to enhance their humanities research, we'll consider our own needs, and we'll get our toes wet with some self-learning resources available on the web. At the end of the workshop, you'll have a chance to produce and get feedback on a personal learning plan to take your programming forward (if you decide that it's the right choice for you).

No prior knowledge of Python or programming is assumed. The workshop does assume you are in a research-related role.
