Python Study Group


The Python Study Group is back on track for the fall semester 2016!

In ETHOS Lab we hope you all had a nice summer break and we are happy to invite you once again to participate in the python study group. The goal with the study group is to gather a community of people all interested in learning the programming language python. It doesn’t matter if you are a newbie or programming wizard. Everyone is welcome and we encourage both beginners and more advanced programmers to join. The idea is to create a structured learning environment where we can learn from each other.

The study group will continue to meet on Mondays from 5 pm – 8 pm in Design Lab. Monday 12th of September will be the study group kick off.

Based on feedback from last year we will try to divide people into three groups:

  • A beginner group who wish to learn how to code proper python. This group will follow the book Learn Python the Hard Way by Zed Shaw.
  • An applied python beginners group who will follow the introduction to Python on CodeAcademy, and focus on how to apply this knowledge.
  • Third we will have the advanced group who will continue to work on their project from last semester or decide on what new challenges to pursue this time around.

ETHOS Lab works with experimental digital methods and that is why we host the python study group. In our work with data and digital methods we often come across digital tools, which requires certain knowledge about programming in python. In the light of this we started the study group two semesters ago and we are excited to continue the study group this fall two help ourselves and other get better at programming in python.
