JP Onnela Launches New Online Python Course

Associate Professor JP Onnela has released version 2 of his HarvardX course Using Python for Research. This course bridges the gap between introductory and advanced courses in Python. While there are many excellent introductory Python courses available, most typically do not go deep enough for students to apply their Python skills to research projects. In this course, after first reviewing the basics of Python 3, students will learn about tools commonly used in research settings. The new version of the course has improved comprehension checks, homework assignments, and a new case study on statistical learning.
