Computer Coding for Beginners

New to programming? We will take you through the basics of coding with Python and give you a complete understanding from the ground up.


Join James Ownsworth as he takes us through the basics of Python coding. James is a mechanical engineer with control systems and has extensive experience with coding for mechatronics applications and data analysis. James is based in our Innovation Lab at our Allia Future Business centre in Peterborough and will be taking us online to show us the ropes about coding.

Allia’s Innovation Lab, Peterborough…

The Innovation Lab at Allia’s Future Business Centre in Peterborough is a fully-equipped lab facility for the design, development and testing of innovative products and systems – all focused on addressing environmental and social challenges.

Who is the event for?

Our event is for people who are completely new to coding or have very little experience. As we go through the software, you will gain a complete understanding of Python coding and will learn how to apply this through a (virtual) hands on coding tutorial.

What we will cover?

Computer Coding for Beginners will cover the basics for individuals who are new to coding. We will go through how the software works, an overview of python syntax, basic inputs to making an interactive simple programme, and will finish with a quick introduction to machine, using data to make predictions which can be used for stocks and the property market.

What the afternoon will look like:

• 1pm – introduction from the lab

• 1:20pm – An introduction to Python

• 2:10pm – Virtual hands on coding tutorial

• 4:00pm – Q & A (Optional)

• 4:30pm – End event

Important bits…

This will be an online event (1pm-4.30pm), hosted by the Innovation Lab’s own technician, James Ownsworth.

The software is free to download, and instructions on how to download will be sent to attendees 3 days prior to the event.

Coding sheets will be emailed to attendees after the event to enable attendees to continue their practice.
