Python for programmers
Python for programmers is course to get you up and running with Python in no time. This course is offered by the Python Academy.
This course is design for participants with (some) programming experience. You once wrote programs in Visual Basic, Pascal, Java, C, Matlab or FORTRAN ? Even if this happen some time in the past this course is for you. A basic understanding of programming is required. Terms such as variable, data type or loop should be familiar.
The introduction is based on a complex example that contains all important parts of a Python program. After this complex example is introduced as a whole, all parts will be explained in detail. There are exercises for each of its parts. Besides writing code, reading code written by others (in this case by the trainer) will be practiced. This is useful because foreign code reading is typically a major part of programming. You might to be forced in programming practice to continue development of existing programs or to use other libraries, which might require some understanding or even modification of there code.
The main parts of the course are:
The participants can follow all steps directly on their computers. There are exercises at the end of each unit providing ample opportunity to apply the freshly learned knowledge.
Every participant receives comprehensive printed materials that cover the whole course content as wells a CD with all source codes and used software.
