The course Learn to program in Python covers the essential aspects of programming in general and of the Python programming language specifically. Relevant terminology for programming in general will be covered, with an emphasis on algorithms: which steps lead from problem definition to solution.
Apart from that, the course covers various programming constructions, as needed for flow control, data types with their typical applications, binary/octal/hexadecimal representation of numbers, and many other programming-related concepts. Apart from the conceptual part of programming, the syntax of Python is covered, illustrating the extensive possibilities of the Python language. The last day of the course covers the object oriented way of programming.
All topics will be trained extensively with practical lab exercises, under the guidance of the instructor. Besides, additional exercises are provided to be made at home in the evening or during the weekend, to obtain even more profit from this training.
Target audience: users who want to learn the Python programming language, but have only little or no programming knowledge or experience.
Course date: 1-5 August 2016
