Python Programming
 /  Python Programming

Python Programming training leads the student from the basics of writing and running Python scripts to more advanced features such as file operations, regular expressions, working with binary data, and using the extensive functionality of Python modules. Extra emphasis is placed on features unique to Python, such as tuples, array slices, output formatting. This is a hands-on programming class. This course is a practical introduction to a working programming language, not an academic overview of syntax and grammar.
