EDUWORKS & Amsterdam Business School, Python Intro Course, 27-28 October

EDUWORKS, the EU-funded project coordinated from Amsterdam Business School, is organizing a two-day Introduction to Python Course, designed specifically for social scientists. The course will take place on the 27th and 28th of October, 10.00-15.00, on the Roetersisland Campus, room H2.01.

Social Scientists are increasingly expected to acquire knowledge in big data, data visualization, and interdisciplinary cooperation (the ”data science” framework). Furthermore, programming is a highly desirable skill for social scientists, thus participation in this course could provide you with necessary skills to continue improving programming skills on your own.

The course takes a ”learning by doing” approach, centered around developing programming solutions for common problems faced by social scientists. The goal of the course is not to focus on acquiring full-fledged set of programming skills, but rather to develop coding skills, which can be utilized along with quantitative research skills.
