Introduction to Programming with Python

July 11, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Intersect and the University of Newcastle are launching a number of training courses in 2018. These courses are free for UON researchers and higher degree by research students, and will be held on Callaghan campus.

Why do this course?

Python has deservedly become a popular language for scientific computing. It has all the friendly features and conveniences you’d expect of a modern programming language. And it boasts a rich set of libraries for working with data.

We teach using Jupyter notebooks, which allow program code, results, visualisations and documentation to be blended seamlessly. Perfect for sharing insights with others while producing reproducible research.

Join us for this live coding workshop where we write programs that produce results, using the researcher-focused training modules from the highly regarded Software Carpentry Foundation (software-carpentry.org).

You’ll learn:

  • Programming concepts and techniques
  • Basic syntax, control structures and data types in Python
  • How to import powerful libraries that support numerical analysis (NumPy) and visualisation (Matplotlib)
  • Approaches to debugging, testing and defensive programming
  • How to blend code, output and documentation with Jupyter notebooks

If you register but later find that you are unable to attend, please withdraw your registration as soon as possible to allow others to attend.

Please direct enquiries to Richard Berry, UON eResearch Analyst on 4913 8031, or email Richard.Berry@newcastle.edu.au
