Learn the basics of programming with Python! What is a list, variable, or function? What is a string, dictionary, or loop? How can I create a simple program that solves a math problem that I can't do by hand? We will answer these questions, amongst others at this workshop.
Preparation: Download Python. You can either get the default version (http://www.python.org/download/) (basic) or one with the most popular libraries included. A popular distribution is Continuum's Anaconda which you can get here (https://store.continuum.io/cshop/anaconda/).
Don't forget to, bring a wireless enabled laptop!
