Please complete this exercise by the start of the next lesson.
The exercise for this week has three parts. First, you will create an account on GitHub.com. Next, you will let us know your GitHub username via Slack. Finally, you will cook up some Python using the skills you learned during the first lesson!
Part 1 - Sign up for GitHub¶
Part 2 - Slack¶
This part is only for registered students. We have sent an invite link to Slack to all registered participants before the first lesson. Please contact the course instructors via email in case you are registered for the course, but don’t have access to Slack.
Go to our Slack page at https://geo-python2021.slack.com.
Post a new message in the #week-1 channel with your full name, GitHub username, course code (GEOK_3030 or GEOG-329-1).
Dave Whipp, davewhipp, GEOK_3030
Håvard Aagesen, haavardaagesen, GEOG-329-1
(please use comma to separate the different parts).
This will help us know you were able to create your account, that you have also figured out how to use Slack, and we’ll know who is who on GitHub :).
Students from other universities; you can add the name of your home institution (Aalto / Turku / Oulu) in stead of the course code like this;
Tua Nylén, tuanylen, Turku.
In case you’re curious, we need your GitHub user name in order to access your exercise repositories in GitHub for grading and feedback.
Part 3 - Cooking up some Python¶
Start your assignment
You can start working on your copy of Exercise 1 by accepting the GitHub Classroom assignment.
Start the coding exercise by accepting the GitHub Classroom assignment (click on the link above).
Read the instructions from the repository.
Launch a new JupyterLab instance. You can use either Binder or CSC Notebooks.
Cook up some Python according to the instructions! Remember to save your work ;) !
Download your solution, and upload it to GitHub.com into your personal Exercise 1 repository.
This week, we upload the exercise manually to GitHub. Next week, you will learn how to pull and push the exercises directly from GitHub to Jupyter Lab using Git!
Each week, you will create a personal copy of the exercise repository on GitHub.com by clicking on the GitHub classroom link.
You can also take a look at the template repository on GitHub: https://github.com/Geo-Python-2021/Exercise-1 . Note that you are only able to make changes in your personal repository generated via GitHub Classroom.
Summary (what to submit)¶
Accept Exercise-1 in Github classroom and upload the jupyter notebook (file name should be
Exercise-1.ipynb) containing your solutions for Part 3.
The exercise repositories are private and they are visible only to you, and the course instructors.
Some instructions on this page are specific to students at the University of Helsinki. Others can skip the Slack step and proceed to solving the Exercise 1 problems! Please note that we provide assignment feedback only for students enrolled in the course at the University of Helsinki.
