Bitten by python

I’m learning to write code for my data analysis and numerical modelling work in Python. I quite like learning how to make tidy code and developing an understanding for the tricks of a specific language, but at the same time I’m deeply impatient as I really just want to get to the answer. I think what I’m saying is that if I had a time machine I’d really like learning programming. If.

Anyway the reality is that my students are better at it than me, and I have much to learn, and it  seems to take me ages. Luckily there is a heap of material out there to help make learning easier and faster. In fact almost overwhelming. Also its not just that I need to learn python but also all the useful packages I need in my work. So here are some resources that I am finding useful so far – I will update it as I find new things.

Tutorials/workshops/lecture notes:

Articles (suggested by my colleague Fabien Maussion):

If you have other recommendations, do let me know, both to help me and so I can add it to the list! In the meantime, enjoy some encouragement from xkcd ….
