Advanced Research Computing
Advanced Research Computing (ARC) is a dedicated computing support unit within the Research Division of the University. We support academic researchers in all faculties across the University, where there is a requirement for the use of computers as part of their research. We provide facilities and expertise, connect people across different disciplines, and build on the services provided by Computing and Information Services. Our range of activity extends from simple coding assistance through to supporting computationally intensive research requiring High Performance Computing.
This course is intended as a follow on to the ‘Introduction to programming using Python’ course also run by Durham’s ARC, although everyone is welcome. It aims to be of interest to people with basic programming experience.
We will briefly recap basic elements of programming with Python, including loops, lists and functions. We will then look at commonly used data structures and other important features of the Python language that are regularly encountered when coding in Python.
This will aim to be a ‘hands on’ course. We will look at code together, write code together and build familiarity around key programming concepts.
