Python - Training
Python is an interpreted, object-oriented, high-level programming language with dynamic semantics. We offer an extensive training program for developers, system administrators and decision-makers who want to enjoy the ease of use of Python and its wealth of high quality frameworks and libraries. Python's simple, easy-to-learn syntax emphasises readability and reduces the cost of program maintenance. Python supports modules and packages, which encourage program modularity and code reuse.
Our classes focus on giving students a good knowledge of Python and offer a thorough introduction to the language, its constructs and object-oriented programming in general. You can request tailor-made classes that can cover topics ranging from GUI programming to SciPy/Numpy and from text processing to numerous other technologies.
