Beginning Python

Jul 18, 2015 · Irvine, United States of America

Are you interested in learning Python, but don't know where to start and how to find time to learn it properly?   Would you prefer to learn from a live instructor rather than by reading books or watching online videos?
Beginning Python is a full 8 hour, fully hands-on training workshop with an experienced professional developer and instructor. It leads you from the basics of writing and running your first script to more advanced topics such as using modules to structure your code, writing unit test and finally building an application to scrape web pages for images.

• Writing & running your first scripts
• Working with data types, data structures and variables
• Control your program with conditionals, loops
• Work effectively with data via slicing and list comprehension
• Reuse code with functions and make it extensible with classes
• Structure your application with modules and packages
• Write unit tests to automatically test your code
• Accept command line parameters in your script
• Understand, run and debug an application to scrape images from websites
