This course is design for participants with (some) programming experience. You once wrote programs in Basic, Pascal, 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.
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
- Names spaces 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 show cases 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 wells a CD with all source codes and used software.
