Introduction to Python & Data


Research Data Management Support

February 22, 2024


Welcome to the course book of the one-day introduction to Python course that is developed by Research Data Management support at Utrecht University. This course is taught every 2 months (agenda) and aims to introduce researchers into programming and data analysis with Python.

In this workshop, we will utilize the Jupyter Notebook interface and take you from the basics of Python syntax to using the pandas package to work with data frames. In doing so, we aim to give you the tools and confidence to start exploring Python and all it has to offer. After the course, you will be able to start using Python in your own project, this will be hard in the beginning (a one day course is unfortunately not enough to become a skilled programmer) but we are available during our weekly walk in hours to get you on track!
