EQUS Python Workshop 2021

The Python Workshop is an annual event run by EQUS, designed to introduce Python programming to researchers working in quantum science and quantum computing.  The workshop will be delivered by Alan Robertson, an EQUS Associate Investigator and member of the Mentoring and Career Development Committee.  Alan currently lectures in the School of Computer Science at the University of Sydney.

Where: The Python workshop will be run in a completely virtual format in 2021 to encourage maximum participation across all EQUS nodes.  To support learning and make attendance more manageable, content will be delivered via five 2-hour sessions.

When: 3–5 pm (Sydney time) every Tuesday from 28 September 2021 to 26 October 2021.  NB: Daylight savings commences on 3 October, so sessions 2–5 for UQ and UWA participants will move forward by an hour:

Session 1: 28 September, 3–5 pm Sydney, Canberra, 3–5 pm Brisbane, 1–3 pm Perth
Session 2: 5 October, 3–5 pm Sydney, Canberra, 2–4 pm Brisbane, 12–2 pm Perth
Session 3: 12 October, 3–5 pm Sydney, Canberra, 2–4 pm Brisbane, 12–2 pm Perth
Session 4: 19 October, 3–5 pm Sydney, Canberra, 2–4 pm Brisbane, 12–2 pm Perth
Session 5: 26 October, 3–5 pm Sydney, Canberra, 2–4 pm Brisbane, 12–2 pm Perth

Who: The Python Workshop is suitable for any EQUS researchers who would like to learn Python programming, although it is particularly relevant to PhD and Master's students and Postdoctoral Research Fellows.

What: The sessions will be hands-on workshops held in the style of tutorials so that participants can code in real time.  To participate fully in this workshop, it is recommended that attendees have git, Python and a text editor installed before the first session.  Additional information and session topics is available at https://github.com/equs-python/__equs__.Python.

Places are limited to 40 participants and filled on a first come, first served basis.  To register for this very popular workshop, please complete the registration form by Friday 24 September 2021.  For enquiries, contact engage@equs.org.
