EARLY BIRD SPECIAL
ONE DAY REMAINING
Ends Today May 18 – 11:59 PM EST.
The 2016 AECT International Convention in Las Vegas is not to be missed. The theme is “Learning from Las Vegas.” Convention dates are October 17-21. Discover the latest in theory, research, and practice related to our field and network with colleagues from around the world. Each annual convention is bigger and better than its predecessor. AECT expects more than 1,000 scholars, researchers, and practitioners to converge on the exciting desert oasis that is Las Vegas this coming October. If you take part in no other professional development activity this year, then this is the one you need to attend. It is an experience like no other.

$85 per night room charge (the lowest
AECT convention hotel rate in decades).

Flying to Vegas remains amazingly
inexpensive from most destinations
around the world.

Introduction to programming course in Python, Summer II 2016

FYI:
From: "Vinhthuy T Phan (vphan)" <vphan<mailto:vphan>>

I would like to let you know that this summer, we will offer an introduction to programming course in Python (COMP 4001/6001, MTWR 5:30-7:30PM from July 5 to August 5, 2016). I will be the instructor. There are three main goals I want to accomplish for this course:

1. Teach beginners how to program. So, there’s no pre-requisite.
2. Teach them how to program in Python.
3. Teach them how to analyze data using Python packages including Pandas, Scikit-learn, seaborn and statsmodels. This will be based on two workshops that I taught earlier (https://github.com/vtphan/python-workshop)

Best,
