Why learn Python? Python is a great language for beginners. It’s beautiful and clean-looking syntax means you'll spend less time being confused (it looks sort of like English!), and more time understanding and applying the fundamentals of programming. Python has a wide variety of uses from creating web applications to hardware programming to data analysis and scientific computing.
In this workshop, you’ll learn the fundamental concepts of programming and how you can use this powerful tool to analyze data. You will learn how to read data from a file and extract useful insights for marketing and data analysis.
What will I have learned by the end of the workshop?
- By the end of the workshop, you'll know the answers to the following:
- What is programming?
- What is Python used for?
- How do I write and run a python program?
- How can I read & analyze data in a file?
You'll be introduced to important concepts such as variables, types, conditionals and loops, and learn how to use an IDE to write more code even faster. (Not sure what any of that means? This workshop is perfect for you!)
None! This workshop is designed for beginners.
Who Is This Workshop For?
Our Teens Learning Code program offers female-identified, trans, and non-binary youth ages 13-17 opportunities to take action on ideas that will shape our future while leveraging the power of technology.

Our experiences empower teens to learn problem solving skills, how to turn ideas into reality, exposure to what a future in technology could look like, and much more.Our workshops, industry events and hackathons cover everything from webmaking to gamemaking to app inventing to networking, building a personal brand and more! Learners will also benefit from getting to meet, learn from, and work with local volunteers who participate in our Teens Learning Code events as instructors, mentors, and role-models!
