Beginners’ Day - Humble Data Workshop
WE ARE BACK AGAIN!
Following the success and positive feedback at EuroPython 2022, we are glad to have HumbleData again at EuroPython 2023!
Learn Python for Data Science in this Beginners’ Day Workshop
Would you like to learn to code but don’t know where to start? Would you like to take a peek at Data Science but are not sure how? Taking first steps are very hard. That is why we have decided to host a workshop to teach beginners how to start with Python and Data Science. Join and let’s share our passion for the world of data science!
“We want our community to be more diverse: whoever you are, and whatever your background, we welcome you.” – Python Software Foundation’s Diversity Statement
We invite those from under-represented groups to apply to join us on Monday 17th July 2023 for the EuroPython Beginners’ Day - Humble Data Workshop. There, you will learn the basics of programming in Python, useful libraries and tools, such as Jupyter Notebook that help with data analysis.
You will be divided into small groups, each with an assigned mentor to guide you through the workshop materials and answer your questions. You can expect plenty of exercises, quizzes and games, and inspiring talks from those who were once in your shoes.
Monday, 17th July 2023 (time and room to be determined).
EuroPython Venue in Prague. More details here.
Who can join?
Anyone with a EuroPython Conference Ticket or Combined Ticket
What do I need to bring?
You will need a computer or tablet with internet access. Nothing else! Our mentors will help you set up on the day.
Wwhat do I need to know?
If you have zero programming experience, this workshop is made for you! If you already have some experience but are new to Python, we’ve got you covered too – the materials are designed for attendees to progress through the materials at their own rate.
How is this possible?
This workshop is being run by data scientists and software engineers dedicated to the spirit of open source. Every day we benefit from the hard work of others when we use free open tools. This is our way of giving back. We thank EuroPython for their support in facilitating this workshop.
If you would like to attend this workshop, please apply here. Deadline: 3rd July 2023.
Wanna help too? Be a MENTOR!
We are looking for volunteers to help mentor the attendees! Without you, this is not possible. There is no need to be an expert in programming, data science or Python – we’re teaching the basics! But you do need:
- Lots of patience, smiles and a friendly attitude.
- The ability to answer questions in a beginner-friendly way, even if it means the explanation is not technically precise.
- And will to learn and to teach the mentees.
In return, you will meet new interesting people outside your usual bubble, gain eternal gratitude from a group of attendees, and help to break down stereotypes around what a developer “looks like”.
BONUS POINT: All this should be added on to your CV!
