Introduction to Python Programming
Course Code: hsts-c18
What is included in this course
This hands on Python programming course shows how to rapidly develop and maintain effective Python programs. The course includes thorough coverage of Python syntax, built in data types and control constructs. The course 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.
You will learn:
Working with Python's built-in objects
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
Using conditional constructs to control flow of execution
Writing clear and concise regular expressions
Organizing code with functions and classes
Creating object-oriented Python programs
Using exceptions to gracefully handle errors
Prior scripting experience or knowledge of fundamental programming concepts.
