Upgrade your scientific programming skills with this one-day Python course - limited places!

About this event

This course is aimed at programmers with little or no Python knowledge seeking to learn how to use Python for scientific computing.

We will introduce Python’s fundamental scientific libraries numpy and matplotlib. Participants should already have some basic knowledge of the Python language.

For an introduction to Python, please see Code Academy’s Python tutorial: https://www.codecademy.com/learn/learn-python-3

Participants should also be comfortable with using the bash shell.

For an introduction to the shell, please see, for example, Software Carpentry's lessons on Unix Shell: https://swcarpentry.github.io/shell-novice/

We strongly recommend you download, before the course, Anaconda Python Version 3.9 from https://www.anaconda.com/download/. This has all the packages required (and more).

Participants must bring a laptop with a Mac, Linux, or Windows operating system (not a tablet, Chromebook, etc.) on which they have administrative privileges.

Participants are also required to abide by the ARCHER2 Code of Conduct (https://www.archer2.ac.uk/about/policies/code-of-conduct.html).

Organiser: Professor Carole Morrison, University of Edinburgh
