Starting September 23, we're offering a 9-session, Friday evening, Python
class at UCSC-Extension in Santa Clara, right across 101 from the Great
This Programmers' class will be low-pressure, but fast-paced, where
students learn and practice core concepts and Pythonic thinking. To join
this class, you should be well-practiced at programming in some other
If you don't feel up to the face-paced class for seasoned programmers,
please take the Python for Beginning Programmers class on for six Tuesday
evenings from October 11 to November 15. There we will concentrate on
some basic engineering mechanisms so that you can take the Programmers'
class at a later time.
Another choice is to take the Programmers' class online with videos,
pdf's, and online discussion, to guide you through the practice. You can
join the online class now; you must join by Oct 17.
And, if you want to take the Programmers' class retreat-style, for four
days in a row, join us on December 5 - 8.
All the Python courses are hands-on. After each short lecture, students
are given lab time and exercises that provide practice with the new
concepts. Next, a new material set is distributed which contains
solutions to the lab exercises and notes for the next short lecture, and
the next set of lab exercises. Questions are always welcome; discussion
and pair-programming are encouraged.
Please come, and send students!
