Practical Python Programming (Ultimate Edition)

[4.5 days] Raymond Hettinger and David Beazley join forces to create
what might be the most ultimate introductory Python course around. In
the first part of this class, Raymond will put his own expert spin on
Dave's "Practical Python Programming" curriculum. This is followed by
a variety of in-depth Python programming topics drawn from Raymond's
body of highly regarded Pycon presentations and invited talks. This
course is best suited for programmers, scientists, and engineers who
already know a little Python and who want to take their skills to a
new level. However, even if you are completely new to Python, this is
a unique opportunity to learn from someone who knows Python inside-
out. Topics are aimed at tasks that you face on a day-to-day basis.
For example, analyzing data files, encoding/decoding various file
formats, automating system tasks, working with collections,
integrating Python with other software, and more. The course features
a 300 page guidebook and more than 50 hands on exercises.

Details and registration:

This will be a fun, highly interactive class for a very small group of
people. The small group size ensures that everyone has extensive
individual attention so that everyone is assured of success in
mastering practical python programming.

Hope to see you there,

Raymond and David
