Python Basics Training
After this course you are able create small programs like todo-lists. You have learned basic building blocks like data types, variables, lists, loops, conditions and functions.
You know what Python is and how to use its libraries. You have learned how to organise your code with modules.
Contents of the training
- Introduction: What is Python and why should you care? Python is a programming language that is used in many places. You see how Python is installed and how to write your first program.
- Datatypes: Arithmetics, Variables
Just like other programming languages, Python uses numbers, text and dates to create programs. These values need to be stored in memory.
- Lists and Loops: Tuples and Dictionaries
Todo lists, address lists, lists are everywhere. Python has three types of lists and they all have different applications.
- Expressions, Conditions, Booleans: A basic mechanism of any programming language is how to ask questions. What needs to happen if today is a week-day? Or when a list has no elements yet?
- Functions: We don’t want to repeat ourselves too much. Code that is used often can be defined as functions. Functions can have input and output but can also be used to bundle code that belongs together.
- Organise code with modules and libraries: Programs grow and we need to keep things readable. This can be done by dividing your programs in modules. What modules are available already in Python and what modules can be found online?
- IO, Exceptions: Any program will at one point have to store and load data. How does Python do this? What happens if something goes wrong?
No prior Python or programming knowledge needed.
Price in-company training
The price for an in-company training at your location in Germany or The Netherlands depends of the number of students:
||Price per participant
These prices exclude travel expenses and VAT. The training can be customised to the specific challenges of your department.
Prerequisites in-company training
The room needs to have a beamer or LCD screen that can be connected to a laptop via USB-C. The students need to have Python 3 or higher installed on their laptops. A code editor like Atom or Visual Studio Code is recommended.
