Hi Python People,

We have a "Software Engineering For Novices" in the daytime next week: MWF.
9-4 at our lab at UCSC-Extension in Santa Clara, right across 101 from the
Great America sign:


There we will practice some basic engineering mechanisms so that you can
take the programmers' class at a later time, or a programmers' class in a
different language.  To join this class you need no prior experience with

However, if you are truely new to programming, it is better to start with
an evening class so that you have more time for practice and sleep.  There
are many at UCSC-Extension.  Search for Python here:


If you have programming experience in any language skip the novice class
and join a programmers' class.  The next daytime Python Retreat for
well-seasoned programmers is Mon through Thur, June 1 - 4, 9-5:


The course is 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 language.

No beginning programmers please, but you can certainly be new to Python.


If you would prefer an online class, you will enjoy:


The online site for this course is open now and new enrollments will be
accepted until May 19.

If you would prefer more time with the online materials, and with me, then
you might like to wait and join the class that opens Jun 16:

exercises where we study the solutions after some lab time.

Questions are always welcome; discussion and pair-programming are

Please come, and send students!


And, the first quarter of the professional course is available for $20 at
Udemy.Com!  I'm so busy that I can't say when the rest of the course will
be there, but I'm working on it.


I hope you find one of these classes useful to your schedule and your taste.
