Python Neurobootcamp

This repository contains materials for the Python neuro-bootcamp, a one-week long class geared towards graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the Neuroscience Graduate Program at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) who have little to no experience in programming.

The first iteration of this course, NEUS640, will be held on the second week of January 2018, every day from 9-11:30am. For more information, please read the course's syllabus.

We run this course on the JupyterHub following their installation guidelines. You can also find more information about how we set it up here.

Goals of the bootcamp

The overall objectives of the course are:

  • build a community of neuroscientists who are committed to help each other and learn together how to code;
  • equip students and postdocs with basic knowledge of how to analyze data collected in neuroscience laboratories;
  • enhance students' and postdocs' appreciation of how acquiring programming skills will help them in their careers within or outside of academia.

Even people that don’t need to know coding, will benefit from learning the basic skills to be able to communicate with other people in the lab who might code more.

We have a Code of Conduct that everyone who is participating in this course is invited to read carefully. Thank you!

This course was partially funded from a NLM T15 Training Grant supplement: T15-LM007088-23
