This workshop covers data analysis and visualisation in Python, focusing on working with core data structures, using conditionals and loops, writing custom functions, and running Python programs from the command line.

All Software Carpentry workshops include an introduction to Bash shell scripting and version control with Git, along with Python.

Learners will gain confidence in using the command-line to navigate their file structure and work with files on their computer, culminating in writing custom Bash scripts to automate repetitive analyses.

They will learn the core concepts of version control and be able to implement a simple Git workflow for tracking their own work.
