Python class in Sydney, Rozelle.

Python is a widely used high-level programming language for general-purpose programming , created by Guido van Rossum and first released in 1991. An interpreted language, Python has a design philosophy that emphasizes code readability (notably using whitespace indentation to delimit code blocks rather than curly brackets or keywords), and a syntax that allows programmers to express concepts in fewer lines of code than might be used in languages such as C++ or Java. The language provides constructs intended to enable writing clear programs on both a small and large scale.

An increasingly popular prototyping language, Python is able to support rapid application and games development. It has a well-defined language specification and innovative syntax features that enable high levels of expressiveness. Python is the preferred language for computer science research and supports multiple modes of development such as:

  • functional programming;
  • object-oriented or imperative programming.

With its flexibility, speed, and machine learning functionality, it is expected to dominate the machine learning landscape for some time to come.

Our Python for beginners course will transfer your existing Object Oriented language to the Python Object Model. As a developing programmer, you can no longer simply stick with the first coding language you learned.

Course prerequisite…

This course is for students who already know at least one object-oriented programming language.
