These webinars are designed to provide a path from little python knowledge to contributing to PyMC. You should start with the event that best suits yourself:

And not only that, are you wondering what is PyMC? What is it used for? to decide if you’d be interested in learning and contributing to PyMC?

We also have a talk for you! In the talk embedded below, Oriol Abril Pla gives an overview of the Bayesian paradigm, probabilistic programming and PyMC, covering also a couple case studies to showcase its use in real scenarios.


1

Only for people who need additional help with python, but are already familiar with at least one programming language

2

This is an old (but useful) resource, it uses PyMC3, check Contributing to PyMC for an introduction to PyMC 4.0
