Course Description

This four 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.
Course Length: 4 Days

Python Programming Uses & Stats

Python Programming is Used For:
Web Development Video Games Desktop GUI's Software Development
Year Created
Easy to Learn:
The learning curve is very mild and the language is versatile and fast to develop.
Massive Libraries:
You can find a library for basically anything: from web development, through game development, to machine learning.
Do More with Less Code:
You can build prototypes and test out  ideas much quicker in Python than in other language

Speed Limitations:

It is an interpretive language and therefore much slower than compiled languages.

Problems with Threading:

Multi-threaded CPU-bound programs may be slower than single-threaded ones do to the Global Interpreter Lock (GIL) that allows only one thread to execute at a time.

Weak on Mobile:

Although, there are a number or libraries that provide a way to develop for both Android and iOS using Python currently Android and iOS don’t support Python as an official programming language.
