Intermediate Python Programming for Social Scientists

This workshop expands on the Beginner Python Programming workshop by providing participants with some programming experience, more examples, and diving deeper into Python programming using common libraries for data analysis and mapping. Participants will learn how to use computational notebooks to tell their research story.  The all-day workshop will combine synchronous and asynchronous instruction and provide hands-on activities to help you build your Python programming experience.  We will provide plenty of free resources and discuss different ways that programming can help you in your social science research.
