DescriptionThis workshop is the first of a pair of workshops related to the development of ArcGIS Pro Python tools and processes and will provide an introduction to Python programming. The topics to be covered include (1) getting started with Python; (2) use of JetBrains PyCharm Community Edition, a rich, powerful, and free Integrated Development Environment (IDE); and (3) Python fundamentals, including functions, classes and objects, and error handling. The workshop will not cover GIS topics, but is designed as a precursor for, and prerequisite requirement for, the second workshop, entitled "Introduction to ArcGIS Pro Python Tools and Processes Development." It may, therefore, be helpful for anyone wishing to use Python for any purpose.
Anyone wishing to learn the fundamentals of Python programming.
Prerequisite RequirementsThere are no prerequisite requirements. It will be assumed that attendees have little experience with Python and are essentially starting from scratch.
Completion of this workshop is required for anyone wishing to attend the associated "Introduction to ArcGIS Pro Python Tools and Processes Development" workshop. If you feel that your experience with Python is such that this introductory workshop is not necessary, please contact the instructor to discuss an exception to this prerequisite rule.
Format and Technical RequirementsThe workshop will consist of a balance between lecture material and demonstrations. Instructions for setting up the required software will be provided prior to the workshop.
A Zoom meeting link will be provided by the instructor.
All attendees must use a microphone and webcam. No exceptions will be allowed for this requirement.
