    Python is becoming the de facto superglue language for modern scientific computing. In this course we will learn Pythonic interactions with databases, imaging processing, advanced statistical and numerical packages, web frameworks, machine-learning, and parallelism. Each week will involve lectures and coding projects. In the final project, students will build a working codebase useful for their own research domain.

    This class is for any student working in a quantitative discipline and with familiarity with Python. Those who completed the Python Bootcamp or equivalent will be eligible
