Subject: ANN: Intro+Intermediate Python course, SF, Oct 18-20
Need to get up-to-speed with Python as quickly and as in-depth as
possible? Already coding Python but still have areas of uncertainty
you need to fill? Then come join me, Wesley Chun, author of
Prentice-Hall's bestseller "Core Python" for a comprehensive
intro/intermediate course coming up this May in Northern California,
then enjoy a beautiful Fall weekend afterwards in San Francisco, the
beautiful city by the bay.
Please pass on this note to whomever you think may be interested. I
look forward to meeting you and your colleagues! Feel free to pass
around the PDF flyer linked down below. Write if you have questions.
Since I hate spam, I'll only send out one reminder as the date gets
(Comprehensive) Intro+Intermediate Python
Tue-Thu, 2011 Oct 18-20, 9am-5pm
Although this course may appear to those new to Python, it is also
perfect for those who have tinkered with it and want to "fill in the
gaps" and/or want to get more in-depth formal training. It combines
the best of both an introduction to the language as well as a "Python
Internals" training course.
We will immerse you in the world of Python in only a few days, showing
you more than just its syntax (which you don't really need a book to
learn, right?). Knowing more about how Python works under the covers,
including the relationship between data objects and memory management,
will make you a much more effective Python programmer coming out of
the gate. 3 hands-on labs each day will help hammer the concepts home.
Come find out why Google, Yahoo!, Disney, ILM/LucasFilm, VMware,
NASA, Ubuntu, YouTube, and Red Hat all use Python. Users supporting or
jumping to Plone, Zope, TurboGears, Pylons, Django, Google App Engine,
Jython, IronPython, and Mailman will also benefit!
PREVIEW 1: you will find (and can download) a video clip of a
class session recorded live to get an idea of my lecture style and
the interactive classroom environment (as well as sign-up) at:
PREVIEW 2: Partnering with O'Reilly and Pearson, Safari Books
Online has asked me to deliver a 1-hour webcast a couple of years ago
called "What is Python?". This was an online seminar based on a
session that I've delivered at numerous conferences in the past. It
will give you an idea of lecture style as well as an overview of the
covered in the course.
