Python Tutorial Autumn 2012
In the Digital Humanities researchers need to cope with a lot of texts and you may have already been using a programming language like "Java" or "Perl" or even "Python" itself. Java, however, needs a lot of background knowledge and the concept is sometime hard to get. Perl, being rather old school and almost the only language that is delivered by installing an Operation System itself, you may find the syntax hard to learn and difficult to understand.
Python has the benefit of being an Object Oriented Programming language and learners can write a script without even knowing about it. What is more, there are quite a lot of (programming!) libraries learners can use in order to analyze and/or process texts and it's somehow much easier to learn and understand.
