This course offers a basic and accessible introduction to programming in Python, aimed specifically at researchers and teachers without prior coding skills. Due to limited capacity, we can only offer this course to staff affiliated with Leiden University.

During three interactive weeks, this course will explain the core features of the Python programming language, including topics such as variables, data types and control structures. Additionally, participants will learn about the main techniques that can be used to clean, enrich, analyse and visualise data.

The training consists of three sessions on 19th & 26th November and 3rd December; the online sessions will last 3 hours 09:30-12:30.
