Cal NERDS

Saturday Python Coding Bootcamps

Making coding accessible to diversity STEM undergrad and graduate students. Cal NERDS Python bootcamps provide access to coding to UC Berkeley diversity STEM undergraduate and graduate students. They are offered throughout the year. Each bootcamp is around four hours long and scheduled on the weekends. There are two types of bootcamps covering different topics; Introduction to Python - no prior coding experience needed and Advanced Python. These workshops are designed for students who don’t have time to enroll in a semester-long course but want coding experience. These bootcamps are made possible by a generous donor named Susan Lyne. Get ready for a career in the tech industry with these skills sets!

In the introduction to python, you will learn Spectral analysis, image analysis, curve fitting, etc. No prior coding experience needed. Participants also receive a intro to python coding book.

REGISTRATION FOR ADVANCED PYTHON | SUMMER DATES TBA

In the advanced python bootcamp, you will learn about object oriented programming, code parallelilzation, more data analysis techniques, and basic graphical user interfaces. Basic programming knowledge and familiarity of python syntax is highly recommended.

“I'm a dss student and have fear of taking classes that I'm not familiar with particularly, high tec. classes. Most of the classes are impacted and getting help in a computer class is not realistic. The weekend class was manageable everyone was great. The group created a friendly atmosphere that made us all feel included. It helped me loose fear of learning a new computer program.”
- Lena, UC Berkeley Senior
