Python 102: Control Flow (Loops, Functions and Conditionals)

Python 102: Control Flow (Loops, Functions and Conditionals)

This hands-on workshop is designed to be taken after Python 101 and will train learners to use three key tools for simplifying, clarifying and scaling programs for real-world applications in Python: loops, functions, and conditional tests.

The workshop is open to anyone, but learners should be familiar with basic programming in Python equivalent to the Python 101 workshop. You will need access to a Windows, Mac or Linux computer. The curriculum is based on episodes 5-8 of the Software Carpentry Programming with Python lesson.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Identify key characteristics and advantages of object-oriented programming
  • Practice navigating and utilizing the Jupyter Labs interface
  • Use functions and assignment to create and manipulate common object types, including numbers, strings, arrays and lists in Python
  • Perform simple statistical summaries and visualization on data arrays in Python
