Course description

Python Foundations

This course will be delivered online due to new measures that are currently in place to slow the spread of COVID-19. The course will be taught virtually, on GoToWebinar, by an Enthought trainer in real-time. 

  • The virtual version of this class will be taught over 5 half-days instead of 3 full days. The class will be taught in two 2 hour sessions each day from9-11AM and 1-3PM MDT, with a 2 hour break from 11AM-1PM MDT.

We endeavor to deliver these virtual programs as we would a face-to-face program. Interaction with the trainer is encouraged.

This 3-day intensive Python training class provides practical, hands-on experience and foundational working knowledge of Python for data analysis, science, engineering, and other technical applications. Whether you are new to Python or a long-time enthusiast, you'll benefit from this focused series of topics and best practices taught by experts who create Python software for notable companies in finance, oil and gas, scientific research, aerospace, biotechnology, marketing analysis and more.
