Hands-on Introduction to Python (5 part series)
Each of these sessions is two hours.
During the first three sessions we will introduce the key concepts of the Python language: variables, functions, control structures, I/O, exception handling as well the concept of object-oriented programming.
During the fourth and fifth sessions, we will focus on how Python can be used in a scientific environment by using Numpy and SciPy.
To participate in the hands-on exercises:
a. You will need to a laptop with a functional connection to the internet.
b. Follow this link to mybinder.org: https://mybinder.org/v2/gh/CHPC-UofU/python-lectures/HEAD
