Python for Humanists – Crash Course
Dr. Bryan Tarpley, Associate Research Scientist for Critical Infrastructure Studies at CoDHR, will be teaching "Python for Humanists – Crash Course", an 8-week long course which seeks to drastically lower the barrier-to-entry for humanities researchers interested in unlocking the power of Python. All levels of experience are welcome to attend.
During these 8 weeks, participants will become acculturated to the “Pythonic” way of thinking, and will become proficient in using the following fundamental building blocks of procedural programming:
  • Variables, operators, lists, and dictionaries
  • If-statements, for-loops, and functions
  • Classes, properties, and methods
  • Reading, writing, and manipulating files
This course will run from March 25th to May 13th, and meet every Friday from 9:00-11:00 AM (CST) through Zoom. All class sessions will be recorded and posted for participants whose schedules conflict with the live meeting time. More information, including the course syllabus, can be found on our website,
