Introduction to Programming: Plotting and Programming in Python
This Software Carpentry workshop will introduce the building blocks of the Python scripting environment. Participants will learn about simple and complex data types, conditionals and looping in Python. This workshop will prepare participants to carry out batch analysis and equip them with the knowledge to start creating automated pipelines to increase data processing power and productivity.
This workshop will take place over four morning (9.00-12.30): 22nd to 25th August. Please only register if you are able to fully commit to attending *all* four sessions.
What should I bring into the event?
This is an online workshop, so you will need to provide your own computer with Anaconda and Python 3 pre-installed (instructions will be provided), and have access to a reliable internet connection sufficient for video conferencing. A second monitor is highly recommended.
Chromebooks and tablets are not suitable for this workshop; you will need a full-function computer.
What prior experience do I need?
No specific experience is required, although previous use of the command line interface will be helpful
Who should attend?
Researchers looking for scripting capabilities to run batch analyses, to link processes to create a basic pipeline, or to automated repeated tasks for efficiency and reproducibility. The workshop is relevant for all disciplines.
How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
You can email email@example.com
What's the cancellation policy?
Cancellations are accepted up to 72h before the start of the workshop. If you do not join on the day without having cancelled beforehand, you may be blocked from attending any future QCIF training workshops.
