Need to get up-to-speed with Python as quickly and as in-depth as possible? Already coding Python but still have areas of uncertainty you need to fill? Then come join me, Wesley Chun, author of Prentice-Hall's bestseller "Core Python" for a comprehensive intro/intermediate course coming up this May in Northern California, then enjoy a beautiful Fall weekend afterwards in San Francisco, the beautiful city by the bay.
Please pass on this note to whomever you think may be interested. I look forward to meeting you and your colleagues! Feel free to pass around the PDF flyer linked down below. Write if you have questions.
Since I hate spam, I'll only send out one reminder as the date gets closer.
(Comprehensive) Intro+Intermediate Python Tue-Thu, 2011 Oct 18-20, 9am-5pm
Hope to meet you soon! -Wesley
(COMPREHENSIVE) INTRO+INTERMEDIATE PYTHON
Although this course may appear to those new to Python, it is also perfect for those who have tinkered with it and want to "fill in the gaps" and/or want to get more in-depth formal training. It combines the best of both an introduction to the language as well as a "Python Internals" training course.
We will immerse you in the world of Python in only a few days, showing you more than just its syntax (which you don't really need a book to learn, right?). Knowing more about how Python works under the covers, including the relationship between data objects and memory management, will make you a much more effective Python programmer coming out of the gate. 3 hands-on labs each day will help hammer the concepts home.
Come find out why Google, Yahoo!, Disney, ILM/LucasFilm, VMware, NASA, Ubuntu, YouTube, and Red Hat all use Python. Users supporting or jumping to Plone, Zope, TurboGears, Pylons, Django, Google App Engine, Jython, IronPython, and Mailman will also benefit!
PREVIEW 1: you will find (and can download) a video clip of a class session recorded live to get an idea of my lecture style and the interactive classroom environment (as well as sign-up) at:
PREVIEW 2: Partnering with O'Reilly and Pearson, Safari Books Online has asked me to deliver a 1-hour webcast a couple of years ago called "What is Python?". This was an online seminar based on a session that I've delivered at numerous conferences in the past. It will give you an idea of lecture style as well as an overview of the material covered in the course.
