This three-part interactive workshop series is your complete introduction to programming Python for people with little or no previous programming experience. By the end of the series, you will be able to apply your knowledge of basic principles of programming and data manipulation to a real-world social science application.
The complete Python Fundamentals series has 6 parts. Each of the parts takes 2 hours, and is delivered in a lecture-style coding walkthrough interrupted by challenge problems and a break. Instructors and TAs are dedicated to engaging you in the classroom and answering questions in plain language.
Parts 1-3 are intended for the complete beginner in Python. We will go over the basics of Python in Jupyter, variables and data types, and a gentle introduction to data analysis in Pandas:
Part 1: Introduction to Jupyter and Python, Variables
Part 2: Data Types and Structures
Part 3: Introduction to Pandas
After completing parts 1-3, you will be able to do basic operations in Python. You will know how to navigate Jupyter Notebooks, how to work with common data types and structures, methods, and basic operations in Pandas. You will have the minimum requirements to continue to other D-Lab workshops such as Python Data Wrangling or Python Data Visualization.
