UTSW Upcoming Courses

Introduction to Python I

October 19th, 26thth & November 2nd, 2018

8:00 am – 5:00 pm each day, Room NG3.202 UTSW

This nanocourse will introduce Python for scientific computing. Python is an open-source, fun, easy to learn, and powerful programming language. With deep community support and wide ranging deployment across many domains, Python is a worthy tool for projects large and small that any computational scientist should keep on hand.

Topics for this two day (all-day) course will include:

  • Basic install, setup, and IDEs
  • Basic Syntax
  • Conditional statements, loops, functions
  • Modules, classes, scripting, debugging
  • Numerical arrays/matrices (numpy/scipy)
  • Data structures (pandas)

The course will be interactive, with lectures followed by hands-on learning and exercises. No previous programming experience is necessary. Familiarity with basic programming/scripting concepts is helpful.
