This course will introduce you to the Python programming language and programming by guiding you through reading data in from a file and plotting it.

This is a two-part course, the first part will cover:

  • Variables and assigning values to them
  • Data types
  • Functions and built-in help
  • How to use libraries/packages
  • Reading in data
  • DataFrams and manipulating your data
  • Plotting

This course will be closely following the Carpentries lesson: https://swcarpentry.github.io/python-novice-gapminder/ Previous experience has shown that the times listed in this course are not always realistic, so I have split it into 2 full sessions.

The course will be conducted online and will run from 9:30 until 15:30 with a few breaks throughout the day.

For the course, you will need your own computer with Python 3 installed. Instructions for installing Python 3 on your computer can be found here: http://swcarpentry.github.io/python-novice-gapminder/setup.html

if you encounter any problems installing python or have further queries, then please email me.
