Introduction to Python
18. 7. 2020 @ 14:00 - 17:00 AEST
Heard the buzz about data? Curious about code? Come along to our Introduction to Python workshop on Saturday 18th July!
She Loves Data has been inspiring women all over the world to pursue a career in data and technology. Together with ThoughtWorks, we’re delighted to bring you this hands-on workshop where you can take your first leap into an exciting future career.
Python is one of the most popular and most employable programming languages in the world, and it’s increasingly becoming the preferred language of data analysts and scientists everywhere. It’s powerful, flexible, and well-supported, making it a great first language for beginners.
In this workshop, you will learn:
a) Introduction to Python
b) The basics of programming using Python: data types, variables, conditions, functions, etc.
c) How to use power up Python with functions and modules.
Our remote workshop is open to anyone from any background who identifies as a woman. You don’t need any prior experience in programming or data – just a laptop, a stable internet connection, and enthusiasm to learn!
For setup, make sure you’ve got:
– A laptop with a charger (Mac or Windows, we don’t mind).
– Google Account for access to Colab via Google Drive.
– A web browser (Chrome/Firefox/Safari)
A pair of headphones or a headset would also be preferable.
This will be the first of two Python and data workshops run by SLD and ThoughtWorks. Keep an eye out for an ‘Intro to Data’ workshop in the coming weeks.
We can’t wait to help you get started on your coding journey!
