What you'll learn in this python class:

This is a class for computer-literate people with no programming background who wish to learn basic Python programming. The course is aimed at those who want to learn “data wrangling” – manipulating downloaded files to make them amenable to analysis. We concentrate on language basics such as list and string manipulation, control structures, simple data analysis packages, and introduce modules for downloading data from the web.

This Introductory Python class runs over four weeks, with five hours of class per week (split into 2 ½ hour evening classes). Classes will be given in a lab setting, with student exercises mixed with lectures. There will be a modest amount of homework after each class. Due to the focused nature of this course, there will be no individual class projects but the instructors will be available to help students who are applying Python to their own work outside of class.

Average class size is different from available slots. There could be 10 or more slots available but most of the time, the class runs only with 8, hence it is written there.
