The goal of this site is to provide a set of materials in support of my Python for Informatics: Exploring Information book to allow you to learn Python on your own. This page serves as an outline of the materials to support the textbook.

You can download the exercises, audio, and video lectures to your local computer so you can play them locally. This can be done with either a Right-Click or a Control-Click in most browsers.

Here are the materials for the Big Data Workshop.

We are in the process of translating the slides to a number of languages. You can see the translations here.

All this material (including audio and video) is Copyright Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 unless otherwise indicated. Instructors interested in the slides should contact the author at csev at for an up-to-date copy of the slides in Apple's Keynote format for your use. The slides are also Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 so you are free to reuse and remix these materials for your own purposes.
