Event Details


 

Python is a great language for beginners. It’s beautiful and clean-looking syntax means you'll spend less time being confused (it looks sort of like English!), and more time understanding and applying the fundamentals of programming. Python has a wide variety of uses from creating web applications to hardware programming to data analysis and scientific computing.

 

In this workshop, you’ll learn the fundamental concepts of programming and how you can use this powerful tool to analyze data. You will learn how to read data from a file and extract useful insights for marketing and data analysis.

 

What will I have learned by the end of the workshop?

 

By the end of the workshop, you'll know the answers to the following:


- What is programming?
- What is Python used for?
- How do I write and run a python program?
- How can I read & analyze data in a file?

 

You'll be introduced to important concepts such as variables, types, conditionals and loops, and learn how to use an IDE to write more code even faster. (Not sure what any of that means? This workshop is perfect for you!)


Requirements:
You must bring your own laptop with wi-fi for which you have administrative permissions. Please be sure to bring your powercord. We do have laptops available to borrow for the duration of the workshop.

If you need to borrow a laptop, please register and then email us at vancouver@ladieslearningcode.com and we can coordinate this for you!

Please note that workshops are taught in English.

Thanks to the UBC Computer Science Department for helping out with this workshop!

Thanks to Amazon for hosting this workshop!




What is Teen Club?

Teen Club, a membership-based club for 13 to 17 year old highschool girls is much more than learning how to code. It is also about learning problem solving skills, how to turn ideas into reality, exposure to what a future in technology could look like, networking and making friends!  



This (free) event is made possible from our friends at Google - and individual donations. If you'd like to help programs like this for teenage girls possible, feel free to make a donation!
