This eight-hour classroom style workshop will help everyone who has an interest in programming to get up-to-speed enough to understand and take part in everything that goes on in the programmers track on day 2 and day 3. You will learn the basics of Python and build your first program.

What is Python?

Python is a scripting programming language known for both its simplicity and wide breadth of applications. For this reason, it is considered one of the best languages for beginners. Used for everything from Web Development to Scientific Computing (and SO much more), Python is referred to as a “general purpose” language by the greater programming community.

What to Expect

Pre-work. Learn fundamentals of programming like working with variables, dictionaries, and functions. There will be online tutorials to complete before the workshop.

Training and Assignments. Once everyone is seated and ready Blake will review the fundamentals covered in the pre-workshop assignments, teach you the need to knows, and get your feet wet. You will work on some basic assignments to complete.

Build a program. Then in the afternoon we’ll form teams to develop a program together that can be used outside of the class.

What do I need to bring?

Bring your laptop. An internet connection and electricity is provided.
