Course Details

Python is known as a general-purpose coding language that can be used for multiple types of programming and software development projects, unlike JavaScript and HTML. Cloud Computing, Machine Learning, and Big Data are some of the hottest trends in the computer science world right now, which helps lots of organisations to transform and improve their processes and workflows. Python is extremely popular too for data science and analytics and is in demand by employers.

This Python eLearning course is completed online, at your own time, at a location that suits you. You progress through the course materials and complete the online lessons and tests. Python is developed under an OSI-approved open-source license, making it freely usable and distributable, even for commercial use. Python interpreters are available for the main operating systems as well (Linux, Mac OS, Windows, Android, iOS, BSD, etc.) so it’s very flexible in where it is used. Python has a simple syntax that makes it suitable for learning to program as a first language
