About this Online Course:

Python is the most intuitive language we have found for both learning programming and developing powerful scripts. Beginning with a presentation on the main principles of scripting with Python, this webinar will incrementally unpack a diverse set of Programming techniques through a series of “live” exercises with Python and Grasshopper. Additional topics covered will include: the basics of scripting with python, where to look for help and references, and when to script in Rhino3D vs Grasshopper.
