Synopsis for Essential Python 3 training course

You want to learn to program software? Well, Python is a great place to start, it has every feature that most languages have; looping, user defined functions, a graphical interface and of course the ability to create standalone processes which can be compiled and executed as downloadable programs without the User needing to install Python on their machine. Maybe you already program but in another programming language such as Java, and Python is needed to progress your knowledge, either way this course will help you understand the workings of Python 3.

This is a five day course based on the latest Python 3 version of the product, some little clues that its Python 3, firstly the print() method has brackets around the values to be printed and of course the import of tkinter doesn’t have a capital 'T', many other little things, but Python has been around for nearly thirty years and the Internet is full of examples produced used the old versions of the code, confusing it will be if you try to understand Python without our guidance, imagine finding example code then you can't run it because it's no longer valid !

Python 3 is one of our Essential courses, they are designed to give the Delegate the best ever knowledge of the fundamentals of the product, of course it’s a five day course and we've crammed it full of information, examples, and of course lots of exercises to practice the concepts we've told you about.

Essential Python 3 is one of the select number of courses which we perform in one of twelve locations throughout the UK and Ireland over the course of 12 months, in addition we can give you this course on-site at your venue at any time you choose and of course you can also come to our offices in Swansea for the training (voted one of the top places to work in the UK).

Whichever type of training you choose they are all performed with a high level of professionalism, we supply of the equipment needed for the course (in fact we bring spares in case someone spills coffee over a laptop … don’t laugh it has happened !!). Our comprehensive manuals are chock full of working code examples of Python plus we give each Delegate a CD of our solutions for the training course at the end of the five days. Our training Consultants are experienced practitioners of Python and will support every Delegate to help them understand the concepts and of course help with the exercises. Let's talk about the exercises, each one of the seventeen exercise sets is designed to give practical and gradual insight into the product, of course the Delegates will be stretched a little but each one is made interesting and enjoyable with full support of our Consultant.

Let's assume you need this course, just get in touch with us, we've been in existence since 2000 so we know how to help you get the best for you or your Company. Ask us for a free no-obligation quotation for the training, if you need a few differing scenarios, maybe a variation of Delegate numbers or even differing locations ask away, our friendly Training advisors are happy to provide you with a number of breakdowns, our quotations are valid for at six months so you will have plenty of time to make your decision and get your Accounts department to raise a Purchase Order, on the other side of the coin, if you have an emergency need for any of our training courses we will endeavour to convene the course to suit your timescales. Flexibility is our motto, particularly if you choose to come to us or we come to you for on-site training, you can choose the start date and even the start times, this is particularly useful when trying to fit in Delegates who have work and home commitments.

Check out our other training courses, we have over 100 to choose from, most are up to date versions of software, some are legacy courses which we wrote years ago and occasionally Companies need to learn how they worked in order to update their systems. All of our training courses have been written in house, all the topics are ones we use in our daily working lives from Oracle and MySQL Databases through to this actual website created with PHP, CSS, JavaScript and others, oh and we have training courses on each of the above disciplines.

Let's assume you need this course, just get in touch with us, we've been in existence since 2000 so we know how to help you get the best for you or your Company. Ask us for a free no-obligation quotation for the training, if you need a few differing scenarios, maybe a variation of Delegate numbers or even differing locations ask away, our friendly Training advisors are happy to provide you with a number of breakdowns, our quotations are valid for at six months so you will have plenty of time to make your decision and get your Accounts department to raise a Purchase Order, on the other side of the coin, if you have an emergency need for any of our training courses we will endeavour to convene the course to suit your timescales. Flexibility is our motto, particularly if you choose to come to us or we come to you for on-site training, you can choose the start date and even the start times, this is particularly useful when trying to fit in Delegates who have work and home commitments.

Check out our other training courses, we have over 100 to choose from, most are up to date versions of software, some are legacy courses which we wrote years ago and occasionally Companies need to learn how they worked in order to update their systems. All of our training courses have been written in house, all the topics are ones we use in our daily working lives from Oracle and MySQL Databases through to this actual website created with PHP, CSS, JavaScript and others, oh and we have training courses on each of the above disciplines.
