Event Details




A DIGITAL RESEARCH INITIATIVE - A collaboration between the Office of the DVC(R), ICT and the Library, La Trobe’s Digital Research Strategy aims to provide a world-class digital research environment to enable and accelerate new research outcomes through the engagement of researchers with advanced and emerging information and computing technologies and appropriate support services.This workshop is presented by our partners, Intersect Australia Limited.



Python is a popular language for scientific computing. It has all the friendly features and conveniences you'd expect of a modern programming language and it boasts a rich set of libraries for working with data.

We teach using Jupyter notebooks, which allow program code, results, visualisations and documentation to be blended seamlessly. Perfect for sharing insights with others while producing reproducible research.

Join us for this live coding workshop where we write programs that produce results, using the researcher-focused training modules from the highly regarded Software Carpentry Foundation (


You'll learn:
● Programming concepts and techniques.
● Basic syntax, control structures and data types in Python.
● How to import powerful libraries that support numerical analysis
(NumPy) and visualisation (Matplotlib)
● Approaches to debugging, testing and defensive programming.
● How to blend code, output and documentation with Jupyter


Researchers and PhD students.
