The Python programming language (English course)

Algemeen

The course The Python programming language covers the essential aspects of programming in Python. You’ll learn the syntax of the language and how to use the extensive standard Python library. In addition, subjects like programming constructs, data types and object-oriented programming style are addressed. These topics are, under the guidance of the instructor, trained extensively with practical lab exercises.

Course attendees receive the following documentation:

  • A student pack with copies of the presentations, lab exercises and answers to the exercises.
  • The pocket guide Python Pocket Reference (covering both Python 2 and 3).
  • Shortly after the course the student will receive a certificate as a proof of participation

Doel

  • After this course you will soon be able to write complex Python programs, on your own or with others in larger projects.

Doelgroep

This course is meant for experienced programmers who want to learn the syntax and characteristics of the Python programming language. For people without programming experience, we recommend our five-day course Learn to program in Python. The full course takes 3 days and can be booked as a whole at a cheaper rate. The first two days of the course can be booked as a separate module for students that only want to prepare for the course Numerical Python.
