22/07/21 – Skills4Scientists: Intro to Python 2

22nd July 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Eventbrite Link: s4s-python2-220721.eventbrite.co.uk

This event is part of the virtual Skills 4 Scientists series run by the Artificial Intelligence for Scientific Discovery Network+ (AI3SD) and the Physical Sciences Data-Science Service (PSDS).

This session will be a follow on from our Intro to Python 1 course, with a focus on working further with the core elements of Python and performing data analysis, using Jupyter notebooks and Anaconda. This course is designed to allow you to follow along with the content and examples as the course goes, but you will also be provided with course material to allow you to cover it again after the live event.

Who is this event for?
This series of virtual events is primarily aimed at late stage undergraduate or early stage postgraduate students who are studying a physical sciences subject. However, it is open to any attendees who wish to join if the subject matter is of interest to you! Please note though that many of the examples will be based around chemistry / physical sciences subject matter.

This course expects attendees to install Python3 and Jupyter Notebooks through Anaconda (https://www.anaconda.com/) before the course. As this is the platform we will be using.

Our pre-requisites document can be downloaded from: https://www.ai3sd.org/wp-content/uploads/sites/374/2021/07/Installation_Instructions.pdf

It is beneficial if you have a very basic understanding of python (or another coding language) but we are not expecting you to be experienced with coding. We advise that you either attend our Python 1 course or view the recording prior to this event.
