Welcome to this introductory computer programming course for geoscientists. Here you will find a series of lectures focused on learning to program using a language called Python. So that we can purely focus on learning to program we will be using IPython Notebook which is a friendly "web-based interactive computational environment where you can combine code execution, text, mathematics, plots and rich media into a single document". This will allow us to develop and execute our programs alongside the lecture notes, instead of having to switch between the two.

The full lecture series can be accessed here if you are revising or want to forge ahead. Otherwise follow the series of posts below each week as we make our way through the material.
