About this workshop

Over two live, three-hour sessions, you’ll get hands-on practice learning to code with this year’s most in-demand language, Python.

We’ll start with the basics like navigating a code editor, writing basic Python programs, and storing and manipulating data. We'll learn how to use data structures like lists and dictionaries, make decisions using conditionals, and write loops to complete repetitive tasks. Finally, we will organize and simplify our code by writing and calling functions.

Along the way we'll learn concepts that are common to all programming languages so that you can gain a solid feeling of what it's like to work and think like a programmer.

By the end of this workshop, you'll have a foundation in the basics of Python programming to keep building on. You might even be inspired to pursue a software engineering career with your new skills.

Please Note: Registration for this workshop will close 24 hours before the scheduled start date.
