Daily Study Group: Getting Started with Mathematica and the Wolfram Language
About this Study Group
Learn to use Mathematica and the programming language at its core—the Wolfram Language. Start with basic explorations to get familiar with the notebook interface, try simple selections of code to learn more about using the language's 6000+ built-in functions and move on to creating your own functions. The study group will also cover visualizations for exploratory analysis of data. No prior programming knowledge is required, and even seasoned users will pick up a useful trick or two.

Sessions include short lessons, poll questions to review key concepts, practice problems and live Q&A. A certificate of program completion will be awarded to participants who attend online sessions and pass the quiz.

Study Group sessions run daily, Monday through Friday. This Study Group begins Monday, July 11, 2022.
