All programming languages require a set of skills and a certain approach, way of thinking if you like. Once a user has acquired these skills learning the specifics of any programming language becomes a whole lot easier. The Python programming language lends itself to teaching the basic programming skills that all programmers require because it is easy to learn, implements multiple programming paradigms and has a shell that allows users to try out their code interactively.

This short instructor led training course uses Pythons strengths as a beginners programming language to gently introduce the aspiring programmer to the the art of coding. You will find these classes non-threatening and surprisingly easy.
