Computer programming is an effective tool to study the dynamics of complex processes such as those occurs at the coast. It also develops problem-solving skills of students. On occasion, I give short courses on Python and Julia programming, on the `Jupyter`

web-notebook environment, to undergraduates. Each course is equivalent to six-hour class time.

The students obtain their certificate by finishing a short test. Such test involves coding skills and aspects related to data analysis.

Topics covered:

- Basic data types
- Data categories
- Pandas and the
`DataFrame`

structure - Data filtering
- Basic data plotting
