Introduction to Python Course
This Python training course is an introductory level course designed for students who are new to the language and need to learn the basics as well as for students who have had some exposure and now want to take their skills to the next level by introducing new topics and reinforcing existing knowledge. After learning all the basics students progress to advanced features of the language and applying it to problem solving. They access databases, connect to a C program, explore multi-threaded programming, and develop a simple GUI.
What is Python?
Python is an interpreted, object-oriented, high-level programming language with dynamic semantics. Its high-level built in data structures, combined with dynamic typing and dynamic binding, make it very attractive for Rapid Application Development, as well as for use as a scripting or glue language to connect existing components together. Python’s simple, easy to learn syntax emphasizes readability and therefore reduces the cost of program maintenance. Python supports modules and packages, which encourages program modularity and code reuse. The Python interpreter and the extensive standard library are available in source or binary form without charge for all major platforms, and can be freely distributed.
