This tutorial introduces the reader informally to the basic concepts andfeatures of the Python language and system. It helps to have a Pythoninterpreter handy for hands-on experience, but all examples are self-contained,so the tutorial can be read off-line as well.
Once you have received acceptance to a Student and Exchange Visitor Program-certified school, you will need to pay your I-901 Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) Fee. Watch our new I-901 SEVIS Fee tutorial to learn about each step of the payment process, including what information you must submit and what to do once you have completed payment on FMJfee.com.
As you progress through the tutorial, you'll be presented with mini exercises designed to illustrate new features. Later chapters build on the knowledge gained in earlier ones, so it's recommended that you go from start to finish. If necessary, you can navigate via the dropdown above (click 'Introduction / Basics').
Each tutorial chapter will have a 'Show me' button that you can click if you get stuck following the instructions. Try not to rely on it too much; you will learn faster by figuring out where to put each suggested code block and manually typing it into the editor.
New on the tutorial: A discussion of the history of the CMB dipole discovery.A history of COBE,the COsmic Background Explorer, in pictures.A cool rollover page that blinksbetween a color image constructed from 3 WMAP bandsand the WMAP ILC reduced galaxy mapA calculator that takes light travel timeand computes the redshift.There is also an advanced versionof my Cosmology Calculator.
Cosmology is the study of the origin, current state, and future of ourUniverse. This field has been revolutionized by many discoveries madeduring the past century. My cosmology tutorial is an attempt tosummarize these discoveries. It will be "under construction" for theforeseeable future as new discoveries are made. I will attempt to keepthese pages up-to-date as a resource for the cosmology courses I teachat UCLA. The tutorial is completely non-commercial, buttax deductible donations to UCLA are always welcome.
Astronomy and cosmology are very much mathematical sciences, but I haveattempted to avoid higher math in these pages. I do use high schoolalgebra and geometry - courses required for admission to UCLA -but I have also included some animations [1, 2,3, 4,5,6,7],some Java applets [1,2],and many illustrations in the tutorials,the ABC's of Distances,and the answers to some of the Frequently Asked Questions.
This tutorial contains 12 PDF files.You can read the files online, or you can download the tutorial to your own computer. If you choose to download, you can work with this material without having to rely on an Internet connection.
In this tutorial we're going to build a blog engine. In reality a blog is probably not the ideal candidate for a Redwood app: blog articles can be stored in a CMS and statically generated to HTML files and served as flat files from a CDN (the classic Jamstack use case). But as most developers are familiar with a blog, and it uses all of the features we want to demonstrate, we decided to build one anyway.
If you went through an earlier version of this tutorial you may remember it being split into parts 1 and 2. That was an artifact of the fact that most features demonstrated in part 2 didn't exist in the framework when part 1 was written. Once they were added we created part 2 to contain just those new features. Now that everything is integrated and working well we've moved each section into logically grouped chapters.
In this tutorial, you will use Python 3 to create a simple Python "Hello World" application in Visual Studio Code. By using the Python extension, you turn VS Code into a great, lightweight Python editor (which you may find a productive alternative to PyCharm).
This tutorial is not intended to teach you Python itself. Once you are familiar with the basics of VS Code, you can then follow any of the programming tutorials on python.org within the context of VS Code for an introduction to the language.
Windows Subsystem for Linux: If you are working on Windows and want a Linux environment for working with Python, the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) is an option for you. If you choose this option, you'll also want to install the WSL extension. For more information about using WSL with VS Code, see VS Code Remote Development or try the Working in WSL tutorial, which will walk you through setting up WSL, installing Python, and creating a Hello World application running in WSL.
FEMA develops multimedia tutorials to provide in-depth training on different facets of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and to support public education and outreach efforts as part of the Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning (Risk MAP) strategy.
cHECk-RAS is a program designed to verify the validity of an assortment of parameters found in the HEC-RAS hydraulics program. The cHECk-RAS tutorial will demonstrate the many functions of the program, including basic information about the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers HEC-RAS program.
The Coastal Hazard Analysis Modeling Program (CHAMP) is a software program designed to enable the user to perform storm-induced erosion treatments, wave height analyses and wave runup analyses associated with coastal flood hazard assessments. The tutorial will demonstrate the many functions of the program including entering, visualizing, tabulating and charting data and performing coastal engineering analyses within a user-friendly environment.
RASPLOT Version 2.1.0 replaces FEMA's FISPLOT program, which was previously used to develop flood profiles. The RASPLOT tutorial demonstrates the use of the software to generate flood profiles from HEC-2 and HEC-RAS models.
This tutorial provides an overview of GIS technology, including what a GIS is, what is needed for a GIS, basic mapping terminology and how a GIS is used to produce maps and other information. This tutorial leads into a second, more advanced tutorial about FEMA's use of GIS technology to create Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps (DFIRMs). Your device must meet the Online Tutorial System Requirements to play the tutorial. (Text Equivalent)
The second in the GIS and Advanced Mapping Technology tutorial series, this tutorial provides information on FEMA's use of GIS technology to create DFIRMs. Topics to be addressed include DFIRM components; graphic, base map and metadata specifications and database design. (Text Equivalent)
The third in the GIS and Advanced Mapping Tutorial Series, this tutorial provides information on the use of DFIRM and other GIS data to produce sample community applications within the context of FEMA flood hazard mapping and mitigation efforts. (Text Equivalent)
This tutorial educates users on the use and application of FIRMs produced by FEMA in support of the NFIP. Each component of the FIRM is explored. The tutorial includes a section that contains examples of how to get specific information from FIRMs. (Text Equivalent)
This tutorial educates users on the use and application of FIS reports produced by FEMA in support of the NFIP. Each component of the FIS report, including the data tables and Flood Profiles, is explored and explained. (Text Equivalent)
After you have worked through this tutorial you might want to move on to reading Part II to gain a more formal knowledge of the SQL language, or Part IV for information about developing applications for PostgreSQL. Those who set up and manage their own server should also read Part III.
