Well, if it's anything like other similar courses I've taken over the
years, the 10 minute break ever 2 hours will be more like 20 minutes,
the hour lunch more like 1.5 hours, and the 8:30 to 4:00 times will be
more like 8:45 to 3:15


but on a serious note, your comment was why I was asking... I was
trying to figure out just how much python you could teach in an
assumed 40 hours... but it's also supposed to be probably 80%
(arbitrary semi-educated guess) hands on coding, and if that's the
case, each 30 minute project could well be 45 minutes to an hour
depending on how fast people type, how familiar they are with actually
properly formatting code, etc...
