Course: Python for Programmers
Dates for Open Courses
|Leipzig||November 02 - 04, 2015||Python for Programmers||English register|
Course also available as in-house training. Please ask us at email@example.com
This course is designed for participants with (some) programming experience. Have you written programs in Java, C# or even Basic, or FORTRAN? Even if you haven't written any code for several years, this course is for you. A basic understanding of programming is required. Terms such as variable, data type or loop should be familiar.
Alternatively: If you already took the course Python for Non-Programmers this course will be the logical next step.
The course covers all basics of Python programming including:
- Python in comparison with other languages
- Python syntax
- Statements and expressions
- Control flow
- Data types
- Dictionaries and sets
- Generators and iterators
- Exception handling
- Input / output
- Complex example
- Modules and Packages
- Namespaces and scoping
- Text processing
- System functions
In addition to this systematic overview, the training uses a complex example that contains all important parts of a Python program. This example showcases several best practices for efficient Python programming. Participants will learn how to read and understand Python code written by other programmers.
Every participant receives comprehensive printed materials that cover the whole course content as well as a CD with all source codes and used software.
