PICSciE Mini-course: Introduction to Python Programming
Speaker: Eliot Feibush, Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory
Department: School of Engineering and Applied Science
Location: New Media Center, Lewis Science Library 130
Date/Time: Wednesday, May 1, 2013, 3:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Python is a popular programming language for analyzing scientific data. The mini-course will present elements and features of python and how it can be used within the science workflow. The course includes hands-on exercises so participants can become familiar with programming techniques. We will use the workstations in the New Media Center.
Emphasis will be on getting started with python and understanding its fundamentals so attendees can continue on their own. The course is intended for researchers working with data generated by simulations or acquired from experiments. Experience in another programming language is recommended background for the session.
Eliot Feibush is a Computational Scientist in the Computational Plasma Physics Group at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory. He specializes in developing scientific visualizations and graphics software, and has written many python programs to select, analyze, convert, and display data from various applications and disciplines. Prior to PPPL, he has worked in medical imaging, architectural design, and geospatial analysis.
