The main purpose of the Coding Bootcamp is to make the student familiar with basic concepts of programming in Python, one of the most important languages used at the moment.

It lays the foundations for further courses in Data Science, Machine Learning, Web Development, and many more.

The Bootcamp takes place within a single week in early May. On five intense days, the students are exposed to a diverse set of programming concepts.

In between, the students use the learned ideas and implement small programs on their own or in small groups.

The small course size enables a one-on-one coaching by the instructor.

The topics introduced are:

  • basic elements of a programming language
  • modularization via functions
  • boolean if-else logic
  • flow control via for- or while-loops
  • data types (lists, tuples, dictionaries, sets, arrays, data frames)
  • object-orientation
  • replacing Excel with Python
  • data mining with APIs (e.g., Google Maps API)
