This course aims to build upon our introductory scattering data analysis training course by providing real-life demonstrations of how to use the Python programming language to perform Small Angle Scattering data analysis.

Running from Monday afternoon until Wednesday lunchtime, this course is designed to take you through the basic principles of programming utilising live interactive demonstrations, to using community recognised data fitting packages from within scripts, and beyond by illustrating the foundations of how to run your own customised algorithms against your Small Angle Scattering data.

This course is targeted to Small Angle Scattering users who are in possession of data already and either need to automate their analysis or require to run bespoke analytical routines on their data in order to make the most of it. As such, it is expected that attendees will be well versed in the basic principles of Small Angle Scattering data analysis already.
