An introduction to computer programming using Python

This session will cover the basics of computer programming using Python (one of the most easy-to-understand languages for beginners). It will give you an understanding of programming principles and practical experience for you to further develop your skills in this area.

The event will consist of two practical sessions where you'll learn and practice the basics, before writing your own small programme.

What you need to check before attending the event:

Are you studying BA (Hons) Social Work or a postgraduate course? You'll still have scheduled teaching, seminars or will be on placement. You are very welcome to attend our ACE Week events that do not clash with your scheduled teaching.
