Python Programming - Intermediate
Monday 12th December 2016, 09:30 - 16:30
Birmingham City University
|The course is aimed at those who have attended the Introduction To Python programming course, or who know the basic constructs of the language. It builds on the basic looking at lists, recursion, file I/O, and introduces a Windows and Logo environment. The main focus is on further developing the candidates to take a real world problem and contextualize this into an algorithm and translate this code.
This course will position programming in the new national curricula, and address:
1) functions - mutable and immutable types - and recursion
2) file I/O for persistent storage
3) the Logo and Windows modules
4) algorithmic approaches for designing code
5) further functions, and making code maintainable and easy to read.
There will be a series of challenges to work through and for which to develop solutions.
Worksheets will be available to use in the classroom, with a staged approach to the tasks. Full solutions will be available.
