(air whooshing) - Hi, I'm Bill Weinman, and I'd like to welcome you to Python 3 Essential Training. Python is a modern object oriented programming language that's well suited for a variety of uses, from simple scripts to complex web applications. In this course, I'll show you how to use Python and how to take advantage of its unique and powerful features. I'll start by giving you an overview of Python so that you can get started right away. This quick start is designed for the experienced programmer who wants to leverage their existing knowledge to start using Python quickly and with as little detail as necessary.
Then we'll get right into the details of the language, it's syntax and structure, exception handling, functions, classes and Python's powerful object model. I'll show you how to do common tasks in Python, including FileIO, databases, and web development and I'll show you how to use the modules to leverage your work and the work of others to get your projects done faster and with less effort. Finally, I'll walk you through some real world examples of working Python code, so you can see how the pieces fit together and to help you get started on your own projects.
This course is designed for programmers. If you already have some programming experience in at least one other modern language, this course is for you. I've been a programmer since the '70's and I've used many different languages over the years, and I'm really excited about Python. I'm glad to be able to share this knowledge and experience with you, so that you can write better applications today. Now, let's get started with Python 3 Essential Training.
