Scientific Python Workshop for Women

As prelude to PyDays Vienna and in the spirit of last year’s Django Girls event, we are proud to again offer a one day workshop for women, this time providing a beginner’s level introduction focusing on Python’s Scientific Stack.

You will get to know:

  • Quick Walkthrough of Python Prerequisites
  • Numerical Computations with NumPy
