Python for Scientist Workshop

5 abr. 22
- 7 abr. 22

A general introduction to the Python programming language, oriented towards Scientific Computing




In the first part of the workshop, you will learn about the different components of the Python ecosystem, such as the interpreter, the different programming environments, distributions and libraries. In the second part, you will learn the syntax of the Python language, emphasizing its applicability to Scientific Computing. 


The final part will introduce three of the most widely used libraries in Scientific Computing: Numpy for the creation and manipulation of numerical data, Pandas for the manipulation of tabular data and statistical analysis, and Matplotlib for data visualization.


Date: Tuesday 5 April from 13:30 to 18:00 and Thursday 7 April from 13:30 to 18:00

Location: Tower I – Room 1 (Parc Científic de Barcelona)
