If you would like to learn Python, Foothill College is
offering a course starting Wednesday evening, 10
January 2007, at the Middlefield campus on the corner
of San Antonio and Middlefield Road in south Palo
Alto. Note that this location is only 1.5 miles from
Google in Mountain View. The course is designed for
students who are already familiar with some type of
programming. Here is the course description:

This course will introduce students to the Python
language and environment. Python is a portable,
interpreted, object-oriented programming language that
is often compared to Perl, Java, Scheme and Tcl. The
language has an elegant syntax, dynamic typing, and a
small number of powerful, high-level data types. It
also has modules, classes, and exceptions. The modules
provide interfaces to many system calls and libraries,
as well as to various windowing systems(X11, Motif,
Tk, Mac, MFC). New built-in modules are easily written
in C or C++. Such extension modules can define new
functions and variables as well as new object types.
Four hours lecture, four hours terminal time.
Advisory: CIS 15A or 27A, and CIS 68A.
