About the workshop
KPMG organizes this program in which you will receive an introduction to the programming language – Python. The introduction is based on the professional python programming course developed by the university of Michigan (free of charge). This course will give you the tools and knowledge to continue the programming course by yourself. KPMG will also host follow up sessions, to give you a chance to ask your questions and support you along your coding journey. KPMG professionals will share their experiences of working with python in business. The classes will be given in English. The course is entry level programming and therefore most applicable for people with little to no experience in programming. Only your curiosity and commitment is required!
The course starts every other Thursday from 10 until 12 in the morning. The course contains 3 sessions. So every other week we start with the first session.
