Basics of Programming in Python
Friday, August 27, 2021 @ 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Workshop Description: In the workshop, first the attendees will revisit the basic concepts of Python programming related to (1) writing and executing Python scripts to perform basic tasks, (2) entering and executing basic Python commands in a Jupyter Notebook, and (3) creating objects, data types such as strings, integers, Booleans, variables, lists, loops, coordinate system, if-statements, inequalities, etc.
Later, this workshop will discuss the implementation of random variables and probability models in Python. In particular, we will introduce numpy that includes the basic understanding of arrays, matrices, matrices operations, random data generation and exercises. Furthermore, since understanding of Matplotlib is necessary to iplot functions and models in Python, we will explore basic strategies to plot using matplotlib
