She Loves Data LA: Introduction to Python
12 September @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm PDT
Heard the buzz about data? Curious about code? Join us for a free, two hour, hands-on Introduction to Python workshop as the first of our two-part Weekend Python series.
She Loves Data has been inspiring women all over the world to pursue a career in data and technology. Together with Sarah Nooravi from SNAP, we’re excited to bring you this workshop where you can take your first leap into an exciting future career or fine tune your data analysis and visualization skills.
Python is one of the most popular and employable programming languages in the world, and it’s increasingly becoming the preferred language of data analysts and scientists everywhere. It’s powerful, flexible, and well-supported, making it a great first language for beginners.
In this workshop, you will learn:
a) Introduction to Python as a programming language
b) The basics of programming using Python: data types, variables, conditions, functions, etc.
c) Simple Data Visualizations
Our remote workshop is open to women. You don’t need any prior experience in programming or data – just a laptop, a stable internet connection, and enthusiasm to learn!
For setup, make sure you’ve got:
– A laptop with a charger (Mac or Windows, we don’t mind).
– A web browser (Chrome/Firefox/Safari)
– Zoom. (A pair of headphones or a headset would also be preferable.)
