  • Reading and writing files
  • Creating variables and objects in Python
  • Communicating with databases
  • Creating structured data with lists, tuples, sets and dictionaries
  • Performing conversion operations on numbers

Workshop Description

This hands on Python programming workshop shows how to rapidly develop and maintain effective Python programs. The workshop includes thorough coverage of Python syntax, built in data types and control constructs. The workshop takes a practical approach to creating and organizing Python programs using functions, packages, modules and classes as part of Python's object-oriented paradigm. Attendees will use regular expressions to rapidly process data captured from users and from the file system.

Attendees will learn how to use Python to create scripts that manipulate data, automate tasks, perform error handling and store and retrieve data by using relational databases. Students will be able to create Python scripts that assist with system administration.

Comprehensive hands on exercises are integrated throughout to reinforce learning and develop real competency.

Workshop Prerequisites

Prior scripting experience or knowledge of fundamental programming concepts.
