Python 0 w/ AIS

  • UF Informatics Institute (map)

Welcome back to a reboot of our Python 0 workshop! If you couldn't make it last time, head over to the Informatics Institute (next to the french fries & Marston) and learn some Python! This workshop will walk you through the essentials of programming in the Python language, and will cover the basics of Python programming. This workshop is very beginner friendly, but all skill levels are encouraged to attend. Please bring a laptop. RSVP through our Facebook event.

PLEASE follow the instructions listed below PRIOR to coming to the workshop:

Download and install Anaconda Python distribution for PYTHON 2. WE ARE USING PYTHON 2, NOT PYTHON 3. (this includes Jupyter, a Python interpreter that will allow you to run iPython notebooks) NOTE: you can use Python 3 but there are some syntax differences, so be familiar with these.

Download the iPython notebooks and files from GitHub. Just click “clone or download" in the top right-hand corner, and select "download zip"

Use this link:

Open up the Anaconda launcher, the Jupyter page will open in a web browser, and navigate to the location of the downloaded files. Through the Jupyter webpage, you will be able to run the iPython inotebook.

The workshop that we will be using is UF DSI Python 0 - 10_26_16 - Student.ipynb
