During this course, students will be led through a series of progressively advanced Python topics, with each topic consisting of lecture, group discussion, comprehensive hands-on lab exercises, and lab review. The content is “skills-centric,” designed to train attendees in essential Python and web development skills, coupling the most current, effective techniques with best practices. Extra emphasis is placed on features unique to Python, such as tuples, array slices, and output formatting. This comprehensive, practical course provides an in-depth exploration of working with the programming language, not an academic overview of syntax and grammar.
Note: In order to provide the broadest range of courses and class dates for this class, this course may be taught by either Wintellect or one of our training Partners.
Geared for experienced users, Mastering Python Programming is a practical, hands-on Python training course that leads the student from the basics of writing and running Python scripts to more advanced features such as file operations, regular expressions, working with binary data, and using the extensive functionality of Python modules. Students will immediately be able to use Python to complete tasks in the real world.
This course is appropriate for advanced users, system administrators and website administrators who want to use Python to support their server installations, as well as anyone else who wants to automate or simplify common tasks with the use of Python scripts. Students should already have a working, user-level knowledge of Unix/Linux, Mac, or Windows. While not required, basic skills with at least one other programming language will be helpful.
