Nencki Open Lab Python Course

We are happy to announce the second edition of our Python course!

The course will provide you with a computer hardware overview and the basics of Python programming. You will use open source tools for data analysis and visualization with packages such as NumPy, Pandas and Matplotlib (and don’t worry if these words don’t mean anything to you, we will start with the basics); the course will improve your programming and analytical skills. Towards the end of the course, you will have the opportunity to implement these skills on a group project.

The course is meant to be general, but if you have any specific questions concerning the use of Python in your everyday research practice, we will be happy to answer them!  

Prerequisites for this course are strong motivation, capacity to participate in all classes and a laptop.


The workshop will take place 9:30 AM – 11:30 AM on Mondays, starting November 14th, until the half of February. Please find the registration form here. We wait for applications until Oct 29th.  The room will accommodate up to 10 participants. The fee is 500 PLN. If you are not eligible for any funding, just let us know, we can provide you with a discount!
