OVERVIEW

This course provides the fundamentals for writing sustainable software in Python. The material is based on industry standard curricula and best practices. This course will give a new programmer a strong foundation in and understanding of the basics of Python, enabling them to dive into an existing, large-scale Python codebases and make incremental improvements and changes, as well as to develop new Python scripts for analysis.

COURSE FORMAT

The course can be customized and varies from 1 to 5-day, on-site boot camps. Each day is broken up into two 3.5-hour modules. Each module consists of a block of lecture and examples, followed by intensive individual and group coding sessions. BDSG instructors will provide feedback, coaching, and suggestions as students work on coding problems.

INTRODUCTORY PYTHON FOR PROGRAMMERS

For an onsite Intro to Python course, we recommend a four-day course, split into eight sessions. Each session includes a lecture block followed by a coding block. This course focuses on fundamentals for newer Python programmers, as well as providing a strong basis in Python best practices and standards.
