Python Study Group

The Python Study Group is starting up again in spring 2018!

In ETHOS Lab we are happy to invite you once again to participate in the python study group that is planned to run for 8 weeks. The goal with 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 encourage both beginners and more advanced programmers to join. The idea is to create a structured learning environment where we mutually help each other on the path to understanding the programming better.

The study group will to meet on Thursdays from 17:30 pm, starting 1 March 2018.

Based on previous experiences, we will try to divide people into sub-groups based on interests or present skill level but it depends on the crowd of participants. 

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 student’s 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 requires certain knowledge about programming in python. In the light of this we started the study group in 2015 and we are excited to continue the study group this spring to explore the possibilities with python programming.
