CPR Methods Seminar: Python 101: Coding for Beginners (Xue Zhang).

Description: Python is relatively easy to learn when compared to most other programming languages. This seminar is geared to participants who want to know how python works and to those totally new to programming. You will learn the fundamentals of Python, including basic data types and python statements. Xue will also introduce a Python package for data management (Pandas) and show other python packages that could be useful for data visualization, web scraping, machine learning, deep learning, and natural language processing. 

Prerequisites: Prior programming experience is NOT required. Please bring your laptop to the seminar and make sure you have a Google account. It is because Google Research developed “Google Colab” that allows anyone to write and execute python code without installing any software and most of the Python packages.
