I really liked the course since it offered a lot of information in a structured way. I especially found it helpful to see the different techniques "in action".

Part 1 - Python programming

This intense two day course covers the basics of how to use Python. The first day covers the core Python language and OEChem. The second day covers essential libraries for calling out to command-line programs, handling CSV files, making plots, and more. Attendees must have some programming experience (know how to use variables, for-loops and if-statements, and experience with text editors and the command-line)

Part 2 - Web Application Development with Django

This three day course walks through two real-world examples based on the Django web application framework: an interactive descriptor calculator and a PubChem database search system. Participants will learn how to work with forms, embed chemical structures, do substructure and similarity searches in a SQL database, develop data models and templates, and work with the jQuery Javascript library.
