Overview

Prerequisites

No previous knowledge of Python is assumed, although students should be familiar with at least one programming language.  Experience of another scripting language, such as Perl or PHP, will be an advantage, as will previous experience of object oriented programming.

Objectives

  • Use the Python interactive interpreter to write and run Python 3 programs
  • Understand Python 3 language elements
  • Exploit the rich library of Python libraries and modules
  • Appreciate the differences between Python 2 and Python 3
  • Recognize simple and complex variable types and select appropriately
  • Use Python 3 operators and built-in functions
  • Understand procedural control flow in Python 3
  • Program file input/output, including persistent data objects.
  • Create well organized and efficient code using functions and modules
  • Use Object Oriented programming techniques in Python 3.
  • Build robust applications with error trapping and reporting
  • Run and control other programs from Python
  • Take advantage of multi-core processors with multiprocessing
