Intermediate Python

 This course presents a straightforward, broad and deep introduction to Python, its syntax and semantics, and its module ecosystem.

Python is a versatile language, and has has found use as a scripting language, in numerical applications, in embedded programming, in natural language processing, in web and GUI programming, and in the information security industry. Its focus on readability makes it an excellent medium for development in the open-source world as well as in the enterprise.

Do you see Python programming in your future? Then this course is for you — we will build up a useful and necessary toolset, from the basic building blocks to larger bits and pieces.

(This course targets Python 2, but we can target Python 3 on demand.)
