Course Code: PYP1
Duration: 4 days
Python is an object oriented rapid development language deployed in many scenarios in the modern world.
This Python Programming 1 course is designed to give delegates the knowledge to develop and maintain Python scripts using the current version (V3) of Python.
There are many similarities between Python V2 and Python V3. The skills gained on this course will allow the delegate to develop their own skills further using Python V2 or V3 to support the development and maintenance of scripts.
The Python Programming 1 course comprises sessions dealing with syntax, variables and data types, operators and expressions, conditions and loops, functions, objects, collections, modules and packages, strings, pattern matching, exception handling, binary and text files, and databases.
Exercises and examples are used throughout the course to give practical hands-on experience with the techniques covered.
This course aims to provide the delegate with the knowledge to be able to produce Python scripts and applications that exploit all core elements of the language including variables, expressions, selection and iteration, functions, objects, collections, strings, modules, pattern matching, exception handling, I/O, and classes.
The Python Programming 1 course course is aimed at those who want to improve their Python programming skills, and for developers/engineers who want to migrate to Python from another language, particularly those with little or no object-oriented knowledge. For those wishing to learn Python and have no previous knowledge of programming, they should look to attend our foundation course Introduction to Programming - Python.
The delegate will learn and acquire skills as follows:
This Python Programming 1 course is an excellent choice for delegates preparing to take the following Python Institute exam:
This course together with the Python Programming 2 course is an excellent choice for delegates preparing to take the following Python Institute exam:
Attending this course will help the delegate gain many of the skills and product knowledge requirements as outlined in the exam objectives. Studying this course and its associated reference materials can form part of the preparation to achieve certification. Experience, practice, self-study and aptitude are also key requirements for exam success.
Before taking any exam, ensure you have the recommended experience. The Python Institute website lists all exam requirements and these are updated regularly.
Exams are not included as part of the course.
Delegates attending this course should have some previous programming experience and be able to define general programming concepts including: compilation, execution, variables, arrays, sequence, selection, iteration, functions, objects, and classes. Moreover delegates should be able to navigate the filesystem (on the command line ideally), edit and save text files and browse the web. This knowledge can be obtained by attendance on the pre-requisite Introduction to Programming - Python course.
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.
Giles - Software Engineer - Government - December 2022
Very interesting and useful. Everything was explained really succinctly and understandably. Lecturer made sure everyone was following along and frequently asked if we had any questions. Genuinely enjoyed it. Exercises were good.
Adam - Apprentice Software Engineer - Government
Absolutely superb from start to finish. I feel as though I'm ready to start writing basic Python apps which I hoped would be possible at the outset. Can't speak highly enough of tutor, Stuart, whose clear, understandable explanation of the more complex aspects was simply outstanding.
Mark - Government
Musie was very articulate knew his subject well, you got the feeling he really cared about you wanting to learn, he kept asking questions to make sure we understand what we are learning, he was passionate about coding and very sincere in his approach, overall a good teacher, only negative I would say is sometimes the explanations were too long but overall top marks.
Shazaul - IT Manager - Real Estate
Kevin was very helpful in answering any questions. He was also considerate of individuals background and previous knowledge and taught at a comfortable pace for everyone.
Apilan - Data Analyst
Kevin was an outstanding instructor. I would certainly recommend the course to anyone as a first step in to python Really appreciate all hard work and patience from Kevin, who showed to be very knowledgeable, yet approachable and understanding. Ready to answer and elaborate on all questions posed. I will be walking away with a solid foundation on python and looking forwards to putting into practice the content of what I learnt.
