Python for All: Democratizing Coding Mastery with AI Chatbot Support

Python for All: Democratizing Coding Mastery with AI Chatbot Support Online

We will utilize AI chatbots like ChatGPT, Bard, and Co-pilot to support the process of learning to code. Using Python as our teaching tool, participants will acquire skills that are transferable to other programming languages. We will explore how AI chatbots can be invaluable resources for understanding, writing, and refining code, as well as for facilitating transitions between different coding languages.

Workshop attendees will:

  1. AI Fundamentals: Understand key concepts and terminology related to generative AI.
  2. Practical Application: Use generative AI as a programming assistant to enhance coding efficiency, troubleshoot errors, and tackle projects with greater confidence.
  3. Critical Evaluation: Develop the ability to assess the accuracy, reliability, and usefulness of AI-generated code and solutions.
  4. Ethical and Practical Evaluation: Examine the ethical implications of generative AI, recognizing its strengths, weaknesses, biases, limitations, and potential for misuse.
  5. Adaptability and Continuous Learning: Cultivate skills to continuously adapt to advancements in AI technology.

This workshop is also being offered on July 9 from 2-4PM
