Week-long Bootcamp December 14-December 18

This week-long remote bootcamp provides a thorough introduction to the Python programming language for beginners. We will cover everything you need to know to start writing your own Python code, including:

-How to use Python
-Basic objects: integers, floats, strings, Booleans, lists, and dictionaries
-Basic functions
-Writing loops and conditionals
-Writing functions
-Loading and working with files
-Basic error handling
-Importing modules
-Exploring and cleaning data with pandas
-Writing and running scripts
-Using Jupyter notebooks

This bootcamp will include a mix of lecture and self-guided tutorials. Live lectures will happen every morning from 10 am – noon Central time, though recordings will be available to view only for the duration of the workshop. Participants must also find additional time each day to complete required self-guided tutorials.

Prerequisites: If this is your first time learning a programming language, we highly recommend you also take the Programming Concepts workshop before you begin the bootcamp.
