As well as being a general purpose programming and scripting language, Python has become one of the most popular languages for scientific computing and more recently for deep learning. Python is everywhere, and Python is cool. Python is easy to learn and Python programs are very readable, even by people who don't know Python. There are Python libraries available for doing pretty much anything.

In this tutorial you will learn enough to start using Python as a scripting language and you will become sufficiently familiar with Python to start making sense of the emerging libraries and frameworks used for deep learning, such as TensorFlow and Keras. This tutorial will show you some of the really cool things you can do with Python right out-of-the-box!

You can learn more about the Python language and about Deep Learning in the morning and afternoon sessions on 'Thursday is Training Day'.
