Humble Data workshop for beginners - Pythonistas and data scientists

Among the many wonderful workshops at EuroPython this year, we are pleased to announce we will be running the Humble Data workshop in person on Monday 17th July 2023, at the Prague Congress Centre (PCC). This is following successful deliveries of this workshop at PyCon US, Ghana, Namibia, Africa, PyData Global and of course, EuroPython 2022!

How is the workshop?

Curious about the event? Read on.

Humble Data workshops are designed to get those from underrepresented groups started in both Python and data science, in an inclusive, laid-back and empathic environment. The workshops focus on helping people with zero experience with coding to learn some of the most fundamental operations in Python, and in turn, use these to get started with reading, transforming and visualizing data.

The workshop is structured to last for 3 hours.

As part of the workshop, participants will work through a series of approachable tutorials with the help of a mentor. For 3 hours (breaks included) we will have teams that will work together with mentors to do plenty of exercises, quizzes and games, to go from Zero to Hero in Python and data science. All that participants will need to bring is a tablet or a laptop with internet access - we will help them with the rest!

Let us help you get started on your Python data science journey. You can read more about the workshop here.

How can I get involved?

Like the idea? Join us as a mentor or mentee!

If you’re new to coding or data science and want to learn more in a supportive environment, apply to join us at the Humble Data workshop by filling in this form. Participation is free for anyone with a EuroPython Conference Ticket or Combined Ticket.

If you’re interested in mentoring, we would love to have your help! It is no issue if you're not the most experienced programmer or data scientist: rather, we are looking for people who are respectful, patient, friendly, curious, and able to explain technical concepts in a way that is approachable for beginners. In return, you will receive the eternal gratitude of the organizers and attendees, the chance to meet people outside of your bubble, and in turn, show that you don’t need to fit a specific mould to “look like” a developer or data scientist.

Finally, if you know anyone attending EuroPython this year who you think would like to either attend or mentor Humble Data, please encourage them to apply!

If you’re interested in attending or mentoring, please complete this form by July 3rd, 2023.

We can’t wait to see you all in Prague this July!
