About this event

Curious about programming? Want to learn one language that you can use to build websites, program robots, visualize data, run servers, and make art? Then you're ready to get started with Python (http://www.python.org/).

Python powers some of the most popular websites and apps we all know and love, like Pinterest (http://pinterest.com/) and Instagram (http://instagram.com/) to name a couple.

Join us for GDI DC's Introduction to Python virtual workshop, designed for those who have very limited or no programming experience. During this interactive workshop, we'll explore the basic components of a programming language: data types, functions, conditional statements, and loops. We'll mix lecture and practice, and we'll work through lots of problems together. You'll leave the workshop with several tested tutorials to work through on your own.

This is a 6-class, 12-hour Intro to Python course with homework that runs on Monday's & Wednesday's starting at 7 pm. The following dates are:
- April 13, 15, 20, 22, 27, 29

Two weeks before the class starts, we'll spend some time helping you set up your environment by sending a Google Hangout link for those who have registered.

Note: As we get closer to the class start I will send you a link to join the virtual class.

• Your laptop (Mac, PC, and Linux are all okay).

Topics covered:
Introduction to Python
Data types and variables
Boolean expressions
Testing and debugging
Working with lists
