Let’s learn how to program in Python
The Penn Institute for Computational Science (PICS) will be hosting a Python workshop on Saturday, April 18 from 10:00am – 3:30pm via Zoom. This course is designed to be an introduction to programming in Python. In this workshop you will learn to write clean, readable, and fast Python code with a focus on graphics-based programming.
Students registered for the Certificate of Advanced Scientific Computing will have priority enrollment. MSE and PhD students can enroll in the Certificate of Advanced Scientific Computing at any time during the year.
The course will be taught by Adam Mally, Lecturer in Computer and Information Science at Penn Engineering. Adam’s primary role is to be an educator in computer graphics and computer science. He teaches the Introductory and Advanced computer graphics courses Adam received his B.S.E. in Digital Media Design and his M.S.E. in Computer Graphics and Game Technology from the University of Pennsylvania. Since 2015, he has served as a lecturer at Penn, instructing undergraduate and graduate students in various computer graphics courses such as CIS 560: Interactive Computer Graphics and CIS 561: Advanced Computer Graphics. His teaching and learning interests include real-time interactive graphics, procedural content generation, and game design.
