Python Drop-in Hours

Do you need new or additional programming skills for a research project? Having a problem with getting data out of a file or reshaping it for your needs? Do you have a task you think you could automate with a script?

The Research Data Service in conjunction with the Scholarly Commons will be hosting drop-in hours for Python coding help. All students, staff, and faculty are welcome to drop by to get help with a coding problem or learn about other campus and community resources for programming help. Some R, SQL, and XML help can be also provided as well. Drop-in hours are meant to assist researchers in programming tasks related to research projects and not for homework help. Members of RDS staff will also be available to discuss more general data management as well.

Please bring your computer and any data files you’re trying to work with.

This is a pilot program and will run on Tuesday afternoons from August 25 to September 29 at the Scholarly Commons (Room 306 Main Library; near the Wright Street stairwell).
