About This Workshop Series

Python has quickly grown into one of the most popular, easy-to-read, flexible, and beginner-friendly object-oriented programming languages. Start writing basic syntax with Python scripts that store and manipulate data in the form of variables, for a more powerful, customisable Python programming experience. Use dictionaries and lists to format and organise information; use conditionals and loops to allow your programs to make intelligent, logic-driven decisions; use functions to organise code according to the problems they solve and start taking on code challenges to build your programming skills.

This 2-part Python Fundamentals Workshop is the interactive and hands-on way to get started on exploring and visualising your data. You will dive head first into Python, skill up with exercises, and by the end of the day you'll have a handle on data analysis, automating business tasks, and web development.

Takeaways

  • Use the Jupyter Notebook application to create and run Python programs.
  • Understand fundamental Python programming language syntax.
  • Distinguish between a data type and structure in Python.
  • Write Python language scripts that use conditionals and loops.
  • Use Python functions to encapsulate problem-solving logic.
  • Begin building Python skills through code challenges.
