About this workshop

Join us for a free, 2-hour class to get hands-on practice with the fundamentals of programming using Python, and find out if a coding career is right for you.

You’ll learn fundamental Python programming techniques and tools, discuss its applications in data analysis and web development — and the types of problems it can solve — then apply your new skills to solve a real-world problem with Python. Bonus: there will be time at the end for live Q&A with the instructor.

We’ll see you in class.


You’ll leave this class with:

  • An understanding of the role Python plays in software engineering
  • Basic knowledge of the core concepts of programming with Python like functions, if statements, loops and more.
  • Hands-on practice with basic Python syntax
  • Confidence to continue practicing your coding skills
