Introduction to Jupyter Notebooks

This workshop will introduce you to Jupyter Notebooks, a digital tool that has exploded in popularity in recent years for those working with data.

You will learn what they are, what they do and why you might like to use them. It is an introductory set of lessons for those who are brand new, have little or no knowledge of coding and computational methods in research.

This workshop is targeted at those who are absolute beginners or ‘tech-curious’. It includes a hands-on component, using basic programming commands, but requires no previous knowledge of programming.
