Today Wintellect held a live Python jumpstart coding session for C# Developers presented by Michael Kennedy, host of the TalkPython and PythonBytes podcasts.
A couple weeks ago Michael presented Wintellect’s live webinar “Write Pythonic Code Through 5 Examples.” During this session, we found that 53% of our audience had .NET/C# backgrounds. Keeping this in mind, Michael and Wintellect decided it would be advantageous to do another Python webcast but geared to those with C# backgrounds that wanted to learn the python language. This webinar will give you a Python Jumpstart as we look at the parallels of the two languages and those concepts in Python.
Every major language or platform feature that you know and love in C# there’s a analogous feature in Python and sometimes the feature in Python is even better.
Michael started the session with a quick Python language introduction about the ecosystem. He then spent the the remaining time building a game for the audience, a version of an old pastime to many “Dungeons and Dragons”.
Following the coding session there was a live Q&A session.
We hope you find this recorded Python webinar session useful. As Michael mentions in the webcast, he will be teaching two upcoming Python workshops if you are interested in learning more.… Read more
Last week, Wintellect held a live coding Python webinar presented by Michael Kennedy, host of the TalkPython and PythonBytes podcasts. Michael provided a live coding session showing Python examples for:
Using these best features and best practices of the Python language, attendees learned how to write more efficient and readable code which will also enable them to pick up other Python libraries more quickly.
StackOverflow’s 2017 Developer Survey Results has shown Python’s popularity has shot up 50% in the past 5 years. Python was also the most wanted language at 20.6%, meaning the language that developers want to use in 2017 after ranking 4th last year. We also found with polling during the webinar most of our audience at 53% had .NET/C# backgrounds and only 55% had a basic script knowledge of Python but were interested in learning the language and planned to use it this year.
The 1-hour webinar was followed by a 1/2-hour live Q & A session where attendees could ask Michael more questions about what they learned in the presentation or other questions about Python.… Read more
