Python for Beginners

Course id: 0027


Python is a remarkably powerful dynamic programming language that is used in a wide variety of application domains. Python is often used in web development, database access, desktop software development, scientific and numerical analysis, software development, education and even game and 3D graphics. Due to its versatility, it is used in a wide variety of industries by well-known names such as Google, NASA, Industrial Light & Magic, Honeywell, Rackspace, Philips, etc.

Python has a very clear and intuitive object orientation syntax that lets you write the code you need quickly. It has very extensive standard libraries and third party modules for virtually any task in any problem domain. Should the need for integration arises, Python plays well with other language platforms such as COM, .NET and Java. Python’s open source license makes it freely usable and distributable and friendly for commercial use.
