Intermediate Python

During this intermediate level Python training, we dig deeper in the world of Python. We extend our knowledge of the standard Python syntax (such as advanced function syntax, OO programming) and discover the tools Python provides for everyday programming tasks (interface to the OS, working with databases etc. ). We also explore the necessary steps towards deploying a program: building a GUI, testing and profiling, packaging and distribution ...

The course is intended for people who already have basic Python knowledge.
