Python for Humanists: First Steps

Curious about Python but not sure where to start? This workshop will introduce the basics of the Python programming language. Participants will learn how to perform common programming tasks in order to build familiarity with Python's syntax and best practices.

In particular, we will cover:

  • reading and writing files,
  • finding and importing Python libraries,
  • using built-in functions to perform tasks.

Designed for participants who have no prior programming experience, this workshop will serve as a foundation for upcoming DHLab workshops on text and data mining.

Registration is open to all Yale students, faculty, and staff, but space is limited. If you have registered, you will be sent a Zoom link the day before the workshop. If you don't receive the email or lose the link, please contact the Digital Humanities Lab.

Participants are asked to come to the workshop with Anaconda Python (version 3.7 or higher) already installed. For help with the installation, stop by the DHLab’s virtual Office Hours. Sample data will be provided.

Instructors: Catherine DeRose (DHLab) and Douglas Duhaime (DHLab)
