Free Python Computer Programming Workshop March 15

A free day-long computer programming/coding training workshop, using the general purpose program Python, will be held Friday, March 15.

The morning session, from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m., will introduce students to Python. The afternoon workshop, from 1 to 4:30 p.m., will involve intermediate Python programming. Participants need to commit to both sessions. 

The hands-on program, funded through a Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Grant, will be held in Essex County College’s Center for Technology, Room 206. Underrepresented students are encouraged to enroll in the program.

“Python is a programming language which has a wide range of applications in many high-demand, well-paying IT fields,” said Engineering and Computer Science Professor Dr. Hossein Assadipour, who will teach the class.   “Anyone who needs to know coding, whether it is in health sciences or business and economics, can use the program.”

Seating for the workshop is limited. To apply/register, contact Dr. Assadipour at
