Attendance requirement:

You need to attend all 3 days. Different topics are covered each day and it builds on materials covered on the previous day, so if you miss a day, we won't have the resources to help you catch up in this online environment. To give you an idea of what's being covered each day, here is a very rough draft of the topics being covered each day. They will be refined each day as required.

Day 1 (July 20): Introduction and basic programming / Q & A
Day 2 (July 21): Data structures /  Q & A
Day 3 (July 22): Python and data science: numpy, pandas and plotly / Discussion / Q & A
