Recommendation for Into+Intermediate Python

John Sphar
Just wanted to blast out a personal recommendation for Wesley Chun's class. Wesley has a complete understanding of the language and is able to answer 95-99% of the questions asked. Better yet, he's honest about when he doesn't know and will often times seek out the answer. On-screen examples with a zen-like focus. 

I found it to be a very straight forward and well thought out class. Socratic method. Ivy-league quality.

Cheers,
John Sphar

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
closer.

(Comprehensive) Intro+Intermediate Python
Tue-Thu, 2011 Oct 18-20, 9am-5pm

Hope to meet you soon!
-Wesley

(COMPREHENSIVE) INTRO+INTERMEDIATE PYTHON

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
material
covered in the course.
