We offer the Code Clinic in the Science Lounge of D-BSSE, Science Lounge, Tuesday, 2nd of October from 2 to 4 pm.


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 ten classes will happen on Fridays from 12th of October to 14th of December from 10 to 12 at HIT J 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
