The popular study group hosted by ETHOS Lab will once again return to ITU!
The purpose of the study group is to gather a community of people interested in learning the programming language Python. It doesn’t matter if you are a newbie or programming wizard. Everyone is welcome and we strongly encourage both beginners and more advanced programmers to join. The idea of Python Study Group is to create a structured learning environment where we mutually help each other on the path of understanding programming better.
The study group will run weekly on Wednesdays from 17.30-19.30 in room 5A14-16 from September 22nd till November 17th, where plenty of snacks and cosy vibes is part of creating the learning setting.

About Python Study Group
ETHOS Lab uses experimental digital methods for analyzing social media data and therefore has an interest in hosting the python group. Although, it is also considered a service to the current students’ needs for exploring a dynamic programming language that can be used for many purposes. In our work with data and digital methods, we often come across digital tools, which require certain knowledge about programming in Python. In light of this, we started the egalitarian study group in 2015, and we hope to be able to continue the exploration of possibilities using Python.
The community-centered learning at Python Study Group revolve around the book ‘Learn Python the Hard Way’. If you are interest in learning programming and completely new to to the field the book will be a good starting point and our volunteers will be able to guide you if any obstacles should occur. It is important to state that no prior programming skills are required to participate and that the study group is open for everyone at ITU. If you are a more advanced programmer, you can join the study group to meet like-minded individuals and work on your own project.
In other words, we encourage everyone to take the notion of a study group to heart: ETHOS Lab facilitates a space where those attending the study group support each other to learn Python, while ETHOS Lab does its best to provide volunteers who are knowledgeable
