Welcome

PRE-REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED.
For those registered, emails from the organizers will come via Eventbrite.

This is the main site for the 
Python Boot Camp Fall 2015, to be held at LBNL near the UC Berkeley Campus from August 19 (Wednesday) to August 21 (Friday) 2015.

The purpose of the boot camp is to get those familiar with other computing languages (like C, Java, FORTRAN, and Lisp) ramped on the basics of the Python language. This is not a computer science class; understanding of basic CS concepts (like looping, recursion, pointers, etc.) are presupposed. The boot camp itself is a mixture of formal lectures, in-class demos, coding breakout sessions for participants, and homework projects. The Camp runs from 8:30am to 5pm each day and is open to anyone within the UC Berkeley and LBNL community.  A small fee to offset the costs will be collected at the time of official registration. There will be a limited number of slots open to industry participants. 

You must have registered to participate in the Camp and doing so early means we can stay in touch with you with any new developments. If you are on the waiting list, we'll be in touch in the days preceding the camp. In the days leading up to the Boot Camp you'll need to install some software and make sure it all works. Go to the Preparation page to get started. If you have any questions, please email us at ucbpythonclass+bootcamp@gmail.com.







This Boot Camp (and the related Seminar course AY250) were made possible in part from a grant from the Computer Science and Engineering Program (CSE) at UC Berkeley, the National Science Foundation (NSF) (Award #0941742 and BIGDATA grant), support from the Vice Chancellor for Research, and the Berkeley Institute for Data Science.
