A second one-day computer programming/coding training workshop using the general purpose program Python will be held Friday, November 17 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The free program, funded through a Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Grant, will be held in the College’s Center for Technology, Room 206.


The first session, held in October was an overwhelming success, said Engineering and Computer Science Professor Dr. Hossein Assadipour, who taught the first session. He will also conduct the November class.


The workshops have been designed to introduce students to high-paying technology careers. Underrepresented students are encouraged to enroll in the program.


“Python is a new programming language which has a wide range of applications in many IT fields,” Dr. Assadipour said. He added that the session is not just for engineering or computer science majors. “Anyone who needs to know coding, whether it is in health sciences or business and economics, can use the program.”


Seating for the session is limited. To apply/register, contact Dr. Assadipour at 973-877-1891 or hassadi@essex.edu.
