Python is an interpreted programming language that is very easy for beginners to learn. Additionally, many tools already exist which allow you to do complicated tasks concisely and effectively. In this workshop participants will use Jupyter Hub, an interactive interpreter, to run Python code on the Center for Research Computing resources. Participants will learn basic Python syntax and powerful packages to explore their data through guided examples.

Please bring your own laptop.
