Event Details

This is the facebook event page for the Python Boot Camp, to be held on the Multimedia University of Kenya on November 11-11-2016 from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm . It is a one-day course intended for those with and without programming experience to learn the Python programming language. The goal is to get participants sufficiently up-to-speed that they can start building their own software to aid in their own scientific research.

During the bootcamp there will be a break as follows:

From 10:00 am to 10:30 am
From 12:40 pm to 2:00 pm
