Learn A Language Series: Intro to Python

July 11, 2018 · 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

This Python workshop will start from the very basics, assuming that you’ve never coded before. We’ll begin by learning about what a coding language is, how we can interact with out computers using it, and how we can control our computers to do what we want. From there, we’ll work our way through the basics of Python – learning about printing, variables, lists, and loops. Along the way, we’ll do some exercises and get some experience actually writing basic code. At the end, you’ll have an understanding of coding, the syntax of Python, and what we can do with code. Light snacks and beverages will be served.
