You can sign up now for any of our upcoming Hives. Each hive has some overarching theme but there'll generally be lots of other cool Python related stuff going on simultaneously. All of our Hives are designed to cater for every level of ability and we rely heavily on those who know Python to help out and pass on their valuable knowledge to others.
HiPy was started in July 2016 by a group of researchers within the Faculty of Science and Engineering at University of Liverpool. The intiative is a response to a large demand from undergraduates and staff to learn coding skills which are highly prized by employers. Our mission is simple:
Build an open, welcome community for anyone who wants to learn Python.
So, whether you're an absolute novice or seasoned hacker, if you're interested in Python come and join us. All of our events are free and everybody is welcome. Come All. Learn Python.
If you would like to become a beekeeper then get in touch. We are always very grateful for additional support.
Understanding the Fundamentals
Wed 21 Feb 2018, 3:00pm until 5:00pm
This Hive is a no holds barred, warts and all, guide to object oriented programming (OOP). We start at the absolute beginning with numbers and variables and progress steadily to cover basic and eventually advanced programming concepts. From recursion to parallel processing. We've got your back.
This Hive is for those of you who really, really, really want to gain a fundamental understanding of Python and coding in general.
Statistical analysis with Python
Wed 28 Feb 2018, 3:00pm until 5:00pm
Statistical analysis is fun. I doubt anyone would question this. But Statistical analysis using Python brings another order of magnitude of joy. In this Hive we'll cover all the hits: Regression, analysis of variance and hypothesis testing - all using Python!
Join us on another great Python adventure, this time with baby penguins!
N.B. Baby penguins not provided. Please bring your own.
An introduction to machine learning
Wed 07 Mar 2018, 3:00pm until 5:00pm
To better understand the uses of machine learning, consider some of the instances where machine learning is applied: the self-driving Google car, cyber fraud detection, online recommendation engines—like friend suggestions on Facebook, Netflix showcasing the movies and shows you might like, and “more items to consider” and “get yourself a little something” on Amazon—are all examples of applied machine learning. In this Hive you will learn the absolute basics of machine learning through a series of useful examples and videos.
