Python programming for beginners
The course “Python programming for beginners” is given by the Centre for Digital Humanities Uppsala (CDHU) in the fall 2022. It runs full time (100%) throughout week 49.The instructors of the course are Marie Dubremetz, Matts Lindström, Ekta Vats and Dann Wu.

The course is a five-day, intensive crash course targeted towards both faculty employees and PhD students in the humanities and social sciences who are interested in gaining a basic understanding of programming and some practical knowledge on how to use the Python language. During the course you will also learn how to install and work with JupyterLab, which is a modern interactive development environment for “literate coding” where you can seamlessly combine written research notes with code, and data. This flexible interface allows users to process workflows in data science, scientific computing, computational journalism, and machine learning – but it is also suitable for data-driven research within the humanities and social sciences.

The course will take place physically at campus Engelska Parken, Uppsala University.

The course will be offered on a first come, first served basis, with a priority towards PhD students and faculty members in the Humanities and Social Sciences at Uppsala University. When the course is completed you will receive a certificate of participation.
