Python is a popular programming language because its “easy to read.” It can be used for web development, software development, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. Although we will not be going quite that deep in just 3 hours, this workshop will provide users with the fundamentals necessary to get started using Python. Its heavily hands-on approach will have users feeling comfortable coding and confident enough to leap from beginner to intermediate and beyond in not time. Students should expect to: Instruct the computer to accomplish tasks and use variables to contain content, learn new Python vocabulary, write and run calculations, and conduct overall data analysis/manipulation using Python’s base functionality.
