February 23 – 26 ｜ Online, broadcast from Stockholm, Sweden
The TC-Python online training course will introduce and teach TC-Python, our Python-based API. The course will start with one day dedicated to installation and setting up the environment. The following three days will be teaching the actual TC-Python usage.
It is necessary that the participant has a reasonable knowledge of Python programming in order to digest the content of this course. Some experience using Thermo-Calc is also required.
What You Will Learn
You will familiarize yourself with basically all calculation types available in TC-Python:
Property / phase diagram
These are nearly all calculation types existing in Thermo-Calc. Throughout the course you will learn about best practices using Integrated Development Environments and programming with TC-Python. Further on you will learn how to integrate TC-Python with common third-party Python-packages like Matplotlib and SciPy.
After the course you will be able to use TC-Python yourself in practical applications.
Good to Know
The training course is hands-on with each participant working at their own computer. Much of the presentations will be in the form of teacher-led exercises. The language is English. It is recommended that you use either two separate screens or one large screen in order to be able to follow the online teacher and operate the software at the same time.
There will be possible interaction from students to teachers throughout the training, mostly through a chat-function rather than spoken dialog. In addition to this, special Q-and-A sessions will be scheduled each day.
Download information for our software tools will be sent out the week before the training, together with the digital course material (handouts and project/macro files). You will also receive a temporary training license file for your own computer before training starts.
09:00 – 11:00Welcome address, making sure everybody is up and running. You can leave the meeting as soon as the environment on your computer is running. Normally your environment should already be prepared before the course starts.
