Students, faculty and staff at Constellate participating institutions (and those participating in an Evaluate & Learn trial) may attend our gentle introduction to help you get started writing Python code taught by Nathan Kelber. An introduction to basic Python programming including operators, expressions, data types, variables, functions, flow control, lists, and dictionaries. No previous coding experience required.

Class will run the week of April 4 in 4 sessions on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Each session runs at 10 am and 3:30 pm EDT -- the two sessions on the same day are identical and you may attend either. (Please look-up the time conversion for your location, we've already changed time here in the US.)

Recordings, closed captions, and transcripts will be made available on this page after each session.
