Event description

Description

At Bright Solutions we take a different approach to your training experience. Classes are run in small groups (never more than 8), we have a strong focus and real world scenario based training, that go way beyond most standard courses. We provide exceptional lunches using a mixture of our partners including one of our favorites “Comptoir Libanais”. You also receive detailed study guide and a host of post course material to reinforce the topics you have covered on the course”.

Course Overview

This hands on three day course 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, and output formatting. This is a hands-on programming class. All concepts are reinforced by informal practice during the lecture followed by graduated lab exercises.

Python Programming is a practical introduction to a working programming language,not an academic overview of syntax and grammar. Students will immediately be able to use Python to complete tasks in the real world.
