Introduction to Python Bootcamp | June 5
About This Workshop
Q: Why has Python quickly grown into one of the most popular programming languages? A: It's an easy-to-read, flexible, and beginner-friendly object-oriented programming language.
The fundamentals — you will learn them in our Python bootcamp!
Start writing basic syntax with Python scripts that store and manipulate data in the form of variables, for a more powerful, customizable Python programming experience; use dictionaries and lists to format and organize information; use conditionals and loops to allow your programs to make intelligent, logic-driven decisions; use functions to organize code according to the problems they solve and start taking on code challenges to build your programming skills.
Whether you want to use this Python course for data analysis, automating business tasks, or web development, this one-day bootcamp will equip you with the fundamental Python programming concepts that form the building blocks of every Python program.Discover why Python is a global tech language of love.

About the Instructor
Tim is a lead data science instructor for GA’s enterprise clients in Washington, DC. He recently escaped the world of consulting, where he worked in litigation analytics helping lawyers win cases with data. Prior to his work in industry, he earned his Master’s degree in statistics. His graduate research focused on statistical programming and machine learning, something he’s still passionate about today. His motivation for teaching is to make the things he finds interesting just as interesting and accessible to everyone else.
When not thinking about programming or math, Tim spends his free time reading sci-fi/fantasy and theorizing on how to construct the perfect omelette. He plays a mean game of pool, too.
In recognition of his exemplary service in the classroom, Tim has been selected as a member of General Assembly's Distinguished Faculty program.
