Introduction to Python programming – Registration

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/274865

This is an introduction to Python programming for students without any prior programming knowledge or experience. The proposed 5-day course covers the fundamental aspects of programming, which include data types, various operators, input/output, conditions, control flow, functions, and algorithms. The learning experience is enhanced by a number of examples and problem sets (data, strings, file processing and simple graphics) that will be solved interactively during the lecture with the participation of the students. The course format includes 3 hours of daily lectures (2 hours of lecture and 1 hour of lab). A certificate of completions will be given to the student who successfully complete the course and pass a short exam at the end of the course to evaluate their knowledge. Electronic copies of the course materials will be provided to the students. The students will also be provided with career advice, and skills development. The course is delivered online and limited space (25 spots) is available. Please register by July 11. After the registration, applicants will be contacted with the virtual meeting information and course material prior to the start of the course.
