This is a tailor-made short course for beginner programmers who intend to start learning Python as their first or second language.

The training (bootcamp) also is the beginning of the road-map dubbed Python to Web, which intends to introduce Python, then move to Programming the Web with Python (Django)

The training will be carried out by highly qualified trainers and practicing software engineers. Be sure to learn this and many more things that will help you in your software development journey. After the training, we will give you a DVD package of resources which include books, videos and sample codes to help you advance your understanding of the language.

Python is an easy to learn, powerful programming language. It has efficient high-level data structures and a simple but effective approach to object-oriented programming. Python’s elegant syntax and dynamic typing, together with its interpreted nature, make it an ideal language for scripting and rapid application development in many areas on most platforms.

Time/Date: October 27-30, 2014, 6-8 PM at the PhD Lab (next to C4DLab) Next Round to be announced in early 2015.
