We offer a new course to exercise Python programming skills. The course requires programming experience with Python, as taught in the "Introduction to Programming with Python course".

The course does not follow a linear script but will offer different programming challenges comprising different difficulty levels and topics. Every challenge includes instructions and examples followed by a list of incremental exercises. The idea is that participants pick their challenges based on individual skills and interests and the tutor will assist to develop solutions.

The challenges mostly focus on developing algorithmic thinking and learning helpful Python modules and less on advanced Python features.

The classes will happen on Thursdays from 19th of October to 14th of December from 3 to 5 pm at HIT K 51 (Campus Hönggerberg).

The course is limited to 15 people and open to all members of DBIOL, I will accept attendees in order of incoming applications. To apply please click here

We offer a new course to introduce Python to programming beginners from DBIOL.

The course is focused to introduce programming to people who never did any programming before and thus the course might not be suited if you know another programming language already.

The classes will happen on Thursdays from 19th of October to 14th of December from 1 to 3 pm at HIT K 51 (Campus Hönggerberg).

In addition to the tutorials attendees will have to spend up to five hours per week for home work.

The course is limited to 15 people and open to all members of DBIOL, I will accept attendees in order of incoming applications. To apply please click here

In case of further questions please contact uwe.schmitt@id.ethz.ch.

We offer a one day course introducing Python to members of DGESS.

The course introduces the Python programming language to students and researchers having basic programming skill in another programming language already.

This course is suited for you if:

  • you did some programming in the past (maybe R, Matlab, C, Java, ...)
  • you know concepts of "function", "if then else", "while" and "for".
  • you do not have Python experience yet.

The course will be to fast if you never programmed before.

The course will be given on 20th of October 2017 in STB E 11 (Stampfenbachstrasse 69). Starting time is 9 am sharp and we will finish around 4 pm.

The room is limited to 11 persons, so we will accept applications in the order of incoming emails.

To apply please please register here

As research becomes increasingly reliant on computational power and specialised software and skills to analyse the data produced, this event will highlight how Scientific IT Services (SIS) enables modern research through the provision of services such as computing clusters, data management, software development and consulting.

Attendees will be able to hear first-hand how SIS has helped a number of researchers through a series of flash talks, followed by an informal booth-style coffee break where they can freely chat about their scientific computing challenges with members of the SIS team.

The event takes place on 15th of November, 2 to 5 pm, location is HG D 1.2.
