Introduction to Programming




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.
