Hi #development Twitter & #GCDigital. I'm thinking of creating a gentle #Python-based learning session on how applications work for senior executives. I need your help. Yellow sign -
My hypothesis == w/ hands-on practice of some simple programming fundamentals, senior folks can better understand modern applications, how they are developed & work + the value of #opensource. Maybe some agile.
This, in turn, leads to understanding the art of the possible, better questions on work being done, potentially practical support for building broader #programming & #DataScience capacity in their organizations & more open access to #opensource tools.
Idea is to build as a @ProjectJupyter notebook running on @GoogleColab & a 1 hour in-person learning session w/ some devs supporting. This shows ease of use, democratic access to tools & scalability.
Basics would include:
- library imports
- variables
- loops
- simple conditional (if)
- functions as building blocks
- Web (requests + bs4) or API call
- data (super simple pandas - read, head & plot)
- does this idea make sense?
- does it already exist?
- what are the most important aspects of application development to you & what's the simplest way to teach them to a very smart, non-technical audience?
- what am I missing or how could I make it better?
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide!
OK! Rough partial draft done that covers the basics of Python programming. Next section is on #opensource, library imports & hoping to show some very easy, but impressive results. Images & videos to come as well. LMK if you have any suggestions. 😀 colab.research.google.com/drive/1UACmmWV…
