Plotting and Programming in Python
This lesson is an introduction to programming in Python for people with little or no previous programming experience. It uses plotting as its motivating example. This lesson references the Jupyter Notebook, but can be taught using a regular Python interpreter as well. Please note that this lesson uses Python 3 rather than Python 2. Prerequisites Learners need to understand what files and directories are, what a working directory is, and how to start a Python interpreter. Learners must install Python before the class starts. Learners must get the gapminder data before class starts: please download and unzip the file python-novice-gapminder-data.zip. Please see the setup instructions for details. This workshop is open to the community and is free of charge. Remote participation will not be supported, so please make sure that you can be on site and physically present during the event.
