Upcoming Workshops:

P4N 2014: Python for Neuroscience (and Psychology)

There will be a 3-day Python Workshop 28-20th April 2014 at Nottingham University, with novice and intermediate streams. We’ll follow that with 2 days of a ‘code sprint’ for developers of PsychoPy. You can book before 14th April (or until all places are filled) at Nottingham’s online store
