Introduction to Python (October 27-28, 2021)

In recent years Python has become more and more popular. According to the Tiobe Index it is about to overtake Java and to be the number two in the list of the most important programming language in the world. In the fields of numerical programming and Machine Learning, Python is the leader. It is not just easier to learn than other languages but programs in Python can also be faster written and are characterized by their easy readability. One of the reasons for this are the user-friendly data structures and the easy to grasp syntax.

Date: October 27+28, 2021 (9.00-17.00)
Location: Online workhop via zoom
Group size: 12 (joint workshop with Leibniz Institute for Plant Biochemistry)

Presenting for the lay public is of outstanding importance not only to get understood but to get a job.
