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) where you will learn about the fundamental concepts in programming using Python and apply them to analyse a sample research dataset.
This course will run over 2 days: Mon 12 April 1.30 - 4.30pm and Tues 13 April 9.30am - 12.30pm.
You will learn:
- Introduction to the JupyterLab interface for programming

- Repeating actions and anylsing multiple data sets (LOOPS)
- Making choices (IF STATEMENTS – CONDITIONALS)
- Ways to visualise data in Python
No prior experience is required to attend this course but it is strongly recommend that you view recordings of the following webinars in preparation for this workshop: Start Coding without Hesitation: Programming Languages Showdown and Thinking like a computer: The Fundamentals of Programming webinars.
