On Friday February 28th, OPIM Innovate hosted their Introduction to Python workshop, part of OPIM Innovate’s Spring workshop series. The session was open to UConn students, staff, and faculty and covered the basics of python programming. Students were able to learn basic syntax and data structures and write some simple programs.
Eli Udler, senior English and Computer Science dual degree undergraduate student, who led the workshop said the workshop was meant to serve business students who’ve never seen a computer before. “The idea being you can start from little to no experience and still get the idea of what coding is.” Udler taught students about different data types, data structures, and a few algorithms utilizing collab software along with his partner Thomas Rivet.
