Python I at NICAR 17

The first of three hour-long sessions introducing Python

h/t to @RichardsAlex for putting most of these materials together

Here's a pretty basic introduction to Python that I'll try to cover in 60 minutes. That is not enough time to learn much Python, so we'll be touching on a some big concepts in brief periods and you will definitely have to go back and review this material, and practice. Learning Python is an investment, a good one. But you won't walk out of here feeling like a guru. Hopefully you'll walk out of here recognizing the potential power of learning a language such as this.

###Here are the basic topics we're going to cover:

  • What's the point?
  • What does a script look like?
  • What are the building blocks of a script?
  • How important is white space?
  • What is a library?
  • What are loops?
