Python Fundamentals

Python Fundamentals is a 4-5 day training course in the Python language and its many applications. The course covers the language itself, explains object-oriented as well as functional programming techniques, error handling, packaging, system and network programming, many of the Python extensions (libraries), as well as best practices.

All concepts are explained through hands-on examples and exercises, so students learn by coding in Python.

Students should have prior programming experience and be familiar with basic concepts such as variables/scopes, flow-control, and functions. Prior exposure to object-oriented programming concepts is not required, but definitely beneficial.

Objectives

This is a fast-paced lab course, designed to bring seasoned programmers up-to-speed in Python, as quickly as possible. While attending this course, you will experience:

  • Pythonic thinking.
  • Python's input and output details: stdio and file io.
  • Python's interesting and extra-useful flow-of-control devices.
  • Python's simple and robust error handling.
  • Python's flexible function protocols.
  • Python's memory model.
  • Python's straight-forward object-oriented features.
  • Python's built-in data types: using them, and inheriting from them in classes you design.
  • Python's list comprehensions, decorators, iterators, generators, context managers.
  • Python's scheme for creating and using libraries and packages.
  • Python's handy libraries for many developer/administrator tasks: shutil, tempfile, subprocess, glob, profile, shelve, os, sys, optparse, unittest.
  • Python's architecture, which allows you to get working very quickly with any Python library (there are thousands).

Audience

This course is designed for developers, system administrators, and QA engineers, who wish to be able to develop, automate, and test applications and systems using one of the most powerful programming languages available today.
