Presenter: Ramandeep Makhija

Python is open-sourced, interpreted, object-oriented, high-level programming language. It is easy to learn and very user-friendly because of its simple syntax and readable code.

– Creating and assigning values to a variable
– Using a function
– Import a Python library and use its functions
– Read tabular data from a csv file
– Select individual values and subsections from data
– Perform operations on arrays of data

No prior knowledge is required.

This workshop will be offered in-person in Hesburgh Library, room 246, and is open to undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff.

This workshop requires a minimum of 10 registrants.  Fewer than 10 registrants by the registration deadline will result in the workshop being cancelled. In the event of cancellation, registrants will be notified.
