Return to the Introduction to Programming outline
Excellent course giving a very good introduction to Python and Data Analysis. Initially did the online course supplied by the ONS, which gave a good intro, but this took those initial concepts and ran with them, giving excellent grounding and explaining the logic behind each process. Musie ran the course at exactly the right pace and reacted to questions and areas of interest well, happy to mould the course to our requirements and questions on-the-spot. Very much looking forward to taking this learning and seeing what I can do with it! .... continue

Great course, and very well delivered. Professional and experience trainer. Much preferred Stuart's code-along delivery style, rather than the traditional powerpoint and talking from the presenter, then an expectation for separate independent work. Stuart delivered well with a very mixed group of abilities. He enabled building of confidence in those new to the language, and provided valuable critique of those with prior experience who were trying to push themselves further, beyond what was necessarily prescribed by the course. .... continue

I found that that the course was pitched just at the right level. I was a bit concerned that, having been in software development for some time (although relatively new to Python) that some parts of the course might be of less relevance. Not a bit if it, I have learned stuff in the last 4 days that I would never have picked up from a text book or on-line video. The stuff around Object Oriented programming and how the different data types are used and how you can implement them in Python have been especially useful. I have learned a tremendous amount about python not just about the language itself but, perhaps more importantly, how it could be practically applied in the professional software environment. Stuart was a fantastic presenter and passed over the information in a very informative, understandable, pragmatic way without ever losing your interest. Stuart was always available outside of the course for advice and guidance and was particularly helpful to me when I had queries on certain topics. I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone interested in taking up python. Even for people who have a solid background in python, I am sure that there will be a lot they will pick up from this course. .... continue
