summer open to the public. below is the announcement... feel free to
share with colleagues that need to learn and/or get up-to-speed
quickly and effectively!

one additional event is listed below under "PREVIEW 2"... O'Reilly has
asked me to deliver a 1-hour Python intro webcast a couple of weeks
from now. if it's tough for you or any of your newbie friends and
colleagues to afford a full course in this economy, you can at least
get a quickie intro for FREE! more info below and at this link:


Need to get up-to-speed with Python as quickly as possible? Come join

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, Slide, 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!

FREE PREVIEW 1: you will find (and can download) a video clip of a
live lesson that was delivered recently to get an idea of the lecture
style and interactive classroom environment at:

FREE PREVIEW 2: Partnering with O'Reilly and Pearson, Safari Books
Online has asked me to deliver a 1-hour webcast on Wednesday morning
2009 Apr 29 @ 10:30a PDT/1:30p EDT called "What is
Python?" This will be 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. Plus the first 10 registrants will receive an
autographed copy of "Core Python Programming!" For more
