Introduction to Python

On Wednesday September 23, 2020

What you will learn

Python is a powerful programming language that helps run websites, applications, and other digital tools that you rely on every day. It's also beginner-friendly, straightforward, and relevant to your daily work -- plus it immediately stands out on a resume.

You can learn Python -- from its history and when to use it to coding with it yourself -- in this hands-on introduction to Python. The workshop is designed for non-programmers, so no previous experience or special programs are necessary.

You'll get all the information -- and personal guidance -- you need to get up and running with Python.

1pm | Understanding Python -- Get an introduction to Python and understand how you can use it for your organization. You'll learn:

  • the history of Python as a programming language;
  • how Python is commonly used; and
  • how Python can be helpful in your work.

1:30pm | Working with Python -- For the remainder of the training, you'll work hands-on with Python in an online simulator (no special programs or installation required).

You'll learn:

  • how to get started with Python and use the online classroom;
  • how to perform simple but valuable – and helpful! – math operations;
  • what a function is, why you would use one, and how to create your own;
  • how to build powerful conditional statements and loops;
  • common errors in coding Python – and how to solve them quickly; and
  • additional resources you can use to expand your abilities in Python.


The last workshop segment will end at 4:00pm Eastern / Washington D.C. time
