Tutorials: Intro to Python for Brand New Programmers
Wednesday - April 19th, 2023 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in
Just starting out
Brand new to programming and want to get some hands-on Python experience? Let's learn some Python together!
During this tutorial we will work through a number of programming exercises together. We'll be doing a lot of asking questions, taking guesses, trying things out, and seeking out help from others.
In this tutorial we'll cover:
- Types of things in Python: strings, numbers, lists
- Conditionally executing code
- Repeating code with loops
- Getting user input
This tutorial is intended to ease you into Python. Each exercise section is careful not to assume prior programming knowledge.
I expect you to have experience typing on computers and to have rudimentary math skills (just arithmetic). I am not expecting you to have experience with programming. We will define new terms as we use them
You'll leave this tutorial, having written a couple small programs Python yourself. Hopefully you'll also leave with a bit of excitement about what Python can do and curiosity to keep diving deeper.
