What customers say ...
Very good course, excellent content. Does require a strong python background which I lacked so perhaps my experience was not typical. Still I learned a very great deal.

People that took courses have opinions about them:
I really liked the course since it offered a lot of information in a structured way. I especially found it helpful to see the different techniques "in action". This helped a lot to illustrate the principles and keep them in "mind".
Alexander Bittner, gocept GmbH & Co. KG
Dr. Müller is (a) very good teacher. His in-depth knowledge in Python has helped in clearing all the doubts and (he) had very good tips about overall Python programming and concepts. (I) would highly recommend this course and also Dr. Müller for this course.

Dr. Ryan Woodard, Chair of Entrepreneurial Risks, ETH Zurich, Switzerland
Within three days, I got a very good introduction to Python. The course was well designed and systematically covered all basics that are necessary to quickly make efficient use of the language. The course was didactically well structured. A valuable script and many practicable tips added to its quality. Individual needs were catered for skillfully making the course most useful for all participants. I can absolutely recommend this course to everybody who wants become productive with Python very quickly.
Dr. med. Beat Meister, Bern, Switzerland
The standard Python for programmers and the customized "Python for Experts" course where a great success. The courses where well documented and taught on a very professional way, which resulted in a boost on the Python knowledge. The good documentation and teacher knowledge was much appreciated. The hints we received, out of the scope of the course, where very useful. Structured teaching method! Thanks Mike.
Bart Hillaert, Sr HW Engineer, Alcatel-Lucent Bell NV, Antwerpen, Belgium
Participation in the course "Python for Scientists and Engineers" gave me great opportunity to discover many Python tools that are useful for scientists. Since I don't have a good programming background, I have to spend a lot of my working time dealing with programming. During course I've got to know how to solve my scientific problems easier and faster. Mike knows well what scientists need, so his hints are very practical and valuable. The hands-on course prepared by Mike covers a wide range of examples and will be very helpful in my daily work.
Dorota Jarecka, Institute of Geophysics, Faculty of Physics, University of Warsaw (PhD student)
The course "Python for Scientists and Engineers" is a very useful introduction to Python programming for scientific applications and offers a comprehensive overview of this vast subject.
