Introduction to Python
Tuesday, February 19, 2019, 09:00am - 12:00pm
Python is a simple and popular programming language that can be used across platforms, and is useful for a wide variety of tasks.

This Short Course is a basic introduction to scripting using python. Skills taught will include data structures, input and output, loops, and if time permits, function definitions. These tools will be useful for researchers in many fields for data management, automating tedious computational tasks, and handling 'big data'. This course is taught at an introductory level and is appropriate for students with no experience, but will contain material and techniques helpful to moderately experienced python programmers.

Topics to be covered:

  • Introduction
  • Control Flow
  • Lists
  • Input and Output
  • Strings
  • Functions
Location: FAC 101B
Short courses are for current UT-Austin faculty, staff, and students, and cost $30 per seat. Seating for each class is limited, with registration taken on a first-come, first-served basis.
