Security SIG: Programming Essentials for Security Analysts Using Python, Part I

| 2:00pm to 3:30pm Bits & Pieces, Room 306 Sansom Place West

This will be the first of a two or three part series focused on getting you up and running with Python for information security related projects and tasks. We'll talk about PyCharm-Edu, a free tool for learning Python, and virtual environments and how to use them for your Python projects. We'll be sharing some Python scripts used for back-end SIEM realted tasks.

Part one will give folks a solid foundation of Python to build upon.

"Many code editors, IDEs and other tools are too complex if you're just
learning how to program. They often make you invest a serious amount of effort
and time into understanding how the tool works. PyCharm Educational Edition is
easy to get started with, not intimidating.."
