When Week 21, 21 February 2018, 2.30-4.30pm
Where Clephan CL1.32b
Who Paul Brown (De Montfort University) and Gabriel Egan (De Montfort University)
What "Programming for the Humanist, Part One". Sometimes there just isn't an existing bit of software to do what one wants to do with one's research materials, and the best solution is to write a program oneself. This hands-on session and the two that follow it will show that this is no longer an impractical suggestion for the unaided Humanities scholar. Using the easy-to-learn and popular programming language Python, the session will take some common Humanities tasks and show how a few lines of non-frightening Python code can do work that would otherwise take you many hours or even days. By the end of the session, you will know enough Python to tackle some everyday problems in Humanities research.
