Hello! Welcome to our 2-unit DeCal, Introduction to Python brought to you by Astronomers!
The class meets MF 4-5pm in 131 Campbell Hall
This course provides an introduction to the Python programming language with a focus on data analysis and research in astronomy, physics, and other sciences. The primary audience for this course is those who have no prior experience with programming and are intended/declared astrophysics/physics majors, but if you still want a low stress introduction to python relative to other courses and you don't fit the primary audience description we would still love to teach you! Note that if you are already well versed in software development, this may not be the class for you. We estimate the weekly workload to be 3-6 hours. This course can be challenging but well worth it and we hope to see you this fall!
To sign-up for this DeCal, please fill out the enrollment form on the website. Some questions are there to gauge where you are at in your math and programming experience, but they will not be used to bar anyone from signing up for the course. However, it is not guaranteed that you will enroll in the course, either.
We will be sending out enrollment codes before the first lecture which is on Friday, January 20, and then as students fill out the form. We will close the form on Friday, January 27 as it is hard to catch up after that.
No day(s) left until application deadline!
