Python evening course

This is a 10 week evening course which runs at CodeClan's Edinburgh branch. CodeClan's is Scotland's first digital skills academy, providing a range of courses in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

We teamed up with them to deliver this Python evening course, and promote programming in Scotland.

Learning outcomes

On this course you will work through basics you may have missed out on before building up to advanced strategies for keeping your code clean, error-free, and reusable. You will cover strategies for solving common problems, unit test assisted development, and learn how to think in terms of objects.

Course Outline

  • Coding basics (variables, lists, iteration, function calls, etc.)
  • Python’s powerful functions
  • Unit Testing
  • Splitting code into modules
  • Object-oriented programming fundamentals

Course Delivery

This course is delivered over 10 weekly evening sessions. Course learning materials are held on an online portal which you will work through at your own pace. Classes will include quick talks and demos as well as one-to-one time for questions and help. The aim is to ensure everyone makes as much progress as they can without being left-behind or held back by the progress of others.

Who is it for?

Anyone who wants to learn a popular programming language commonly used in financial services, education, and enterprise applications.

This is especially beneficial for programmers/system administrators wishing to explore a new language or for those new to Python who want to consolidate any holes in their knowledge/understanding before moving on.
