Python is a popular, general-purpose, multi-paradigm, open-source, scripting language. It is designed to emphasize code readability and has a clean syntax with high level data types. It is well-suited for interactive work and quick prototyping, yet it is powerful enough for writing large applications. Python has a large number of available and well-written modules for everything from abstract syntax trees to ZIP file manipulation. Its ecosystem features an extensive set of tools including a JIT compiler and fancy IDE's. In this half-day workshop, attendees are introduced to basic Python syntax and to its ecosystem.
