Python Introduction for Non-Programmers

Python was designed with a simple syntax. Clean, readable code is the norm in Python, not the exception.

This training session will introduce you to Python syntax and philosophy. You will learn about Python, and have plenty of opportunity to put it into practice. If you have little to no prior experience in programming this course is for you.

By the end of the course you will be able to write some basic Python scripts, and have a good understanding of the principles of Python, which makes it easier to learn further Python skills.
