    PUG/GCDF are hosting an online Python bootcamp for the GC Community this summer, 5 weeks from July 11 to mid August (MWF, 4-5pm EST). We encourage total beginners, GC Digital Research Institute alums, and people who want to strengthen their fundamentals to join us as we go through the acclaimed Python Crash Course textbook.

    More advanced python users, please pass this blurb on!

    Here’s our tentative schedule:

    • Week of 7/11/2022 – Installation, expectations for the summer, Chapter 1: Getting Started, Chapter 2: Variables and Simple Data Types
    • Week of 7/18/2022 – Chapter 3: Introducing Lists, Chapter 4: Working with Lists, Chapter 5: if Statements
    • Week of 7/25/2022 – Chapter 6: Dictionaries, Chapter 7: User Input and while Loops, Chapter 8: Functions
    • Week of 8/1/2022 – Chapter 9: Classes, Chapter 10: Files and Exceptions, Chapter 11: Testing Your Code
    • Week of 8/8/2022 – Book Project

    We hope that participants are able to stay on throughout the summer.

    If you are interested and could commit to the bootcamp to the best of your ability, please fill out this form by July 8th if you are interested so we can tailor the experience to your needs and interests.


    Question: I’m a library faculty member at Baruch and completed the GC Digital Humanities Institute in 2016. But I’m basically a beginner at this point. Would I be eligible to participate? Thanks.


    Will this be offered, ever again? Thank you!

    Hi Jessica, yes, please sign up! This course is designed for beginners. We will look forward to hearing from you!

    Hi Allison, to my knowledge, this is one of the first summer bootcamps of this nature that the GCDFs have run, but depending on the success of the course, something similar may be organized in the future. That said, we offer regular Python User Group meetings during the semester and a Digital Research Institute every year. Please consider getting involved in whatever capacity you are able to! Here is a link to the PUG page: https://commons.gc.cuny.edu/groups/pug-python-users-group/


    Thanks! I applied. And lastly, is the course on-site or is it remote? Thanks!

    Chelsea Lane

    Wonderful! The course will be virtual (remote).
