Learn Core Python Fundamentals

Introduction to Programming with Python

Though Python® has been in use for nearly thirty years, it has become one of the most popular languages for software development, particularly within the fields of data science, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and web development—all areas in which Python is widely used.

You will learn elements of the Python 3 language and development strategies by creating a complete program that performs a wide range of operations on a variety of data types, structures, and objects, implements program logic through conditional statements and loops, structures code for reusability through functions, classes, and modules, reads and writes files, and handles error conditions.

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for people who want to learn the Python programming language in preparation for using Python to develop software for a wide range of applications, such as data science, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and web development.

Course Objectives

In this course, you will develop simple command-line programs in Python.

•Set up Python and develop a simple application.
•Declare and perform operations on simple data types, including strings, numbers, and dates.
•Declare and perform operations on data structures, including lists, ranges, tuples, dictionaries, and sets.
•Write conditional statements and loops.
•Define and use functions, classes, and modules.
•Manage files and directories through code.
•Deal with exceptions.

Our ‘skills-driven’ courses are efficient, focused, current and comprehensive

Our experts target exactly the skills your team needs to succeed in their jobs, projects or roles, rather than taking a ‘laundry-list’ approach to training, which can often result in overtraining, course overload or overwhelmed students. We’ll work with you to define what it is you need to accomplish, and create the right program, training to those goals. Students of all skill levels will be able to hit the ground running with their new skills right after class ends, since the program was correctly designed from the start.

    I believe self-study would have been much much harder to comprehend the information and pass the test on a first try. My colleagues who self-studied flunked the first time they took it. I passed the first time after attending the boot camp.

    I love the Training Camp format which handles all of the logistics of the training and allowing the student to focus on the course material and certification test! Training Camp helped me to be successful, THE FIRST TIME, for both my PMP and CISSP.
