We are happy to announce the upcoming "Python Programming" course that is going to take place at CNB/CSIC, Seminar Room B, on April, 1st-5th (and no, this is not an April's 1st joke).
Topic: PYTHON PROGRAMMING
Date: April 1-5, 2013
Venue: Seminar Room B, CNB, CSIC. C/Darwin, 3. 28049 Madrid. Spain.
Web site: http://edu.free-bit.org/course/view.php?id=66
This course is to be an International Course, sponsored by CYTED network on Free Software for Life and Health (FreeBIT, 510RT0391). As such, there are no inscription costs, but registration is required.
This will be a self-paced course. At the very least you will learn the *basics* of programming, Python basic variable types, flow control, functional programming, packages, modules, and object-oriented programming. To the extent that time permits we will address specific Python packages of scientific interest in Life and Health Sciences.
This is a *practical*, step by step course with no special requirements (no need to know programming) other than an open mind and willingness to learn. During the course, several practical, real-life, yet very simple, applications will be developed.
Given the practical nature of the course, participants are encouraged to bring a laptop with them, though we can provide a few if needed. Linux will be used for the course. You do not need to have it installed but should bring at least a USB key with 4GB space.
Registration will be open first to CNB, and then externally. We have room for up to 15 students.
How to register:
Send an e-mail to José R. Valverde, CNB, < jrvalverde @ cnb . csic . es > with subject "PYTHON" and stating
- will bring you own laptop (Yes/No)?
As e-mail is proving a bit flaky recently, you may try as well the following (read less frequently) secondary address: < jrvalverde @ acm . org >
All registration requests should be sent before Easter. Acceptance will be on a first-come, first-served basis
