Course Overview

Python – a leading programming language that enables development of tools and applications various purposes.

The course will enrich applicable knowledge in programming using Python. The course will include theoretical knowledge and vast hands-on practice in every field that will be acquired. Participants will gain ability in programming through scripts in the Python programming language. The course will include the following topics:
The unique characteristics of the language including syntax rules, advantages and disadvantages of the programming language in comparison to other programming languages.
Installation of a full working environment and creation of input and output.
The participants will have full capability of use and development within the Python environment including the use of editor and debugger.
Use of variables and casting of variables (int, float, complex, boolean).
Use of ‘if’ statements – if, else, elif.
Boolean operators and numerical operators.
Use of strings variables; use of string functions including slicing.
Types of loops and related commands such as: break, continue, pass, else.
Use of modules including – module creation and import.
Advanced data types: List, Tuple, Sets, Dictionary – creation, manipulations on variables.
Reading and writing files: creation, open, close, read, write, append, etc.
File types – Random and sequence.
Functions – definition, usage, capabilities, return values.
Exception Handling
Python modules – Introduction, creation, import.
Performance consideration while developing with Python.

All hands-on topics that will be learnt throughout the course will be exercised to gain practical expertise. Summary exercises will include programming and developing that requires combined use of the various topics
