All programming languages require a set of skills, as well as a certain approach or way of thinking. 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. 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 Python’s strengths as a beginner’s programming language to gently introduce the aspiring programmer to the art of coding. You will find these classes non-threatening and surprisingly easy.

Add me to the waiting list

Should you need this course urgently, the following options are available:

  1. Pay for 6 delegates (whether you have them or not) and we will schedule the course as soon as possible.
  2. If you have fewer delegates and cannot pay for 6, we can negotiate a shortened course where some of the time will be spent in blended learning - watching videos and doing tutorials and exercises with some contact time with the trainer. We would want to discuss what your core needs are so that we cover those aspects. You need to have paid for 3 delegates at least.
