Urs Fischbacher

will offer a short course in z-Tree from 24.02.-26.02.2020

About z-Tree:

z-Tree is a widely used software package for developing and carrying out economic experiments. The language used to define the experiments is simple and compact, meaning that experiments can be developed quickly, and programming experience is not necessary, though useful. z-Tree is flexible both with respect to the logic of interaction and the visual representation, allowing the simple programming of normal form games, extensive form games, double auctions, or clock auctions, for example.

Course Information:

There will be two sections offered, a beginner section (days 1 and 2) and an advanced section (day 3). As the name implies, the beginner section is intended for those just beginning with z-Tree, and the advanced section for those already experienced in programming with z-Tree. In the advanced section, we will also help to solve individual problems. So it is feasible to participate in both parts.
