Virtual training

Python is an extremely powerful general-purpose programming language used for data science and machine learning projects, web development and software development. Given the ubiquitous use of Python for a variety of tasks, as well as its global support, it has become one of the world's most popular languages — up there with Java, C and C++.

In this introductory training, participants will build a core foundation in the Python programming language and how to use it for various projects. This is a hands-on course where attendees will be in development environments used by practitioners and actively programming. The course concludes with a hands-on project that cohesively ties together all the covered concepts.

Attendees can use either a Mac or Windows computer for this workshop.

This class is different than our Introduction to Data Science workshops in that it focuses purely on Python as a tool. This session is use-case agnostic and by the end of the training, participants will have strong foundations to tackle data science, web development, software and general scripting-related projects. The course covers features of Python programming beyond just data science applications.
