For 2023 (and 2024 ...) - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.

Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!

I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))

The first morning of this course is "fast start Python" - dotting i-s and crossing t-s for delegates who may already be using certain features (but aren't sure why!) and going through underlying paradigms which infuse Python through and through and make it such a great language. So you'll be clear on muttable v immutable, assign v shallow copy, dicts v lists v tuples, and when to use which. And in the afternoon, we'll similarly cover the fundamentals of object orientation the Python way. Even on the first day, robust design, commenting, documentation, re-usablility and testing for an integrated part of the philosophy we teach.

The course then carries on to cover more advanced object features, such as namespaces, decorators, multiple inheritance, mixins, modules and packages, attributes, autoloading and operator overriding, with practical examples to show how you would use these features in a real world application. Design techniques and design patterns - although a general OO topic - are covered with specific attention to how they're best implemented in Python to make for quick to write, easy to test, straightforward to maintain and natural to reuse code.

Iterators and Generators, Regular Expressions, List Comprehensions, Exceptions, Caching, recursion and memoisation ... and much more. You'll learn how to make power use of Python - not only for short programs and small data sets, but also as a part of bigger systems and for handling significant data effciently. We'll look at Python modules that you'll make common use of, including threading, os, os.path and unittest and others, and at data access including XML, SQL, JSON and other data store interfaces.
Some prior programming experience in Python. If you haven't programmed before, please book on our Learning to program in Python course instead, and if you have programmed before but in another language, take a look at Python Programming.

If you're looking to write extensive GUIs using Python, make heavy use of it on the web, or embed it within your own application, please ask us to run a "Python Extra" day for you; Python Extra days allow us to give greater coverage to more specialist topics without extending the basic course.

Upon completion of your course, you'll have online access to the source code of all the examples from the course, and you'll have access to the "Ask the Tutor" forum where you can raise questions. We also encourage you to email the tutor, and to visit us again to use our library as appropriate.
