Ladies Learning Code: Data Insights with Python for Beginners

  • Startup Edmonton #301, 10359 - 104 Street Northwest Edmonton, AB, T5J 1B9 Canada (map)


• Important to know
Registration must be made at in order to attend.

• What we'll do
Python is a great language for beginners. It’s beautiful and clean-looking syntax means you'll spend less time being confused (it looks sort of like English!), and more time understanding and applying the fundamentals of programming. Python has a wide variety of uses from creating web applications to hardware programming to data analysis and scientific computing.

In this workshop, you’ll learn the fundamental concepts of programming and how you can use this powerful tool to analyze data. You will learn how to read data from a file and extract useful insights for marketing and data analysis.

By the end of the workshop, you'll know the answers to the following:

- What is programming?
- What is Python used for?
- How do I write and run a python program?
- How can I read & analyze data in a file?

You'll be introduced to important concepts such as variables, types, conditionals and loops, and learn how to use an IDE to write more code even faster. (Not sure what any of that means? This workshop is perfect for you!)

Our Ladies Learning Code workshops offer female-identified and male-identified, trans, and non-binary adults hands-on, project-based learning experiences that are designed to give beginners the skills and confidence they need to become digital creators.
