Modern Methods in Computational Economics

A Workshop in HCMC

November 2016

John Stachurski

Economists are increasingly using modern open source computing environments such as Python and Julia.

This workshop will cover the basics of these modern programming languages, and how you can use them for research and policy analysis in economics.

We assume that participants know some economics but do not know Python. The level of programming will be introductory.
